This error's coming from scipy/linalg/fblas.so, so looks like this module was 
linked incorrectly.
(I assume you're on Linux). Can you run:-

ldd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/scipy/linalg/fblas.so

On Mac OS X, it's:-

otool -L .../fblas.so

If there is a line saying 'not found', then you probably want to add 
/opt/OpenBLAS/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH, (or to a file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ 
and run `sudo ldconfig`).
