For the record, he did in fact follow my advice (removing the
ATLAS-specific defaults and letting setup.py autodetect the vecLib
framework), and it turns out my advice was incomplete.
One also needs to add
to the argument list of the Extension() call for the _dotblas module.
It worked fine on my machine because I had modified my Python config to
use "-undefined dynamic_lookup" instead of explicit -framework arguments
(this change is necessary for the neighborly cohabitation of different
Python versions, I believe. See the PythonMac-SIG archives for more
