Yes - the problem is that that Atlas implemented versions of lapack
symbols get prefixed with clapack_ so these two liblapack libraries
are not ABI compatible.

This is an ugly situation - I think the Atlas liblapack should be
renamed to something else, personally.

However, to fix your scipy problem, wouldn't a Requires: atlas "fix"
the issue? (And associated BuildRequires, I guess). That's an obscene
hack tho :).
