[SciPy-user] Building on solaris

Could someone guide me on how to build Scipy (0.7) on a Solaris machine?

Operating system info: 64bit SunOS v5.9 Generic_122300-12 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V890  I have python 2.5.2 and numpy 1.3.x installed and running with no problems. Scipy is a bit difficult to build.

The configuration file for scipy requires "BLAS" with the following error:

--- SNIP---

Blas (http://www.netlib.org/blas/) libraries not found.

    Directories to search for the libraries can be specified in the

    numpy/distutils/site.cfg file (section [blas]) or by setting

    the BLAS environment variable.


Compiling the blas libraries asked for another package (LAPACK), which incidentally did not compile either. [I really miss Linux now].

I don't know whether I am pursuing a red herring at this point and maybe there is another cleaner way to do this.  Has anyone had any experience with this configuration?
