Karl, I posted yesterday and ran into the same problem with Redhat, the
"recompile with -fPIC". I did recompile the Atlas libraries with -fPIC but scipy
doesn't seem to pick up on it. I'm eager for a solution to this problem and will
be watching this thread. If I find out anything more, I'll let you know.

Have a good weekend!
