Hi Bjoern,

I think the real problem here is we don't yet have a clear
base installation:

What is worse is the system used by the ToolShed for
running the nightly tests appears to change without
notice, e.g. here it looks like something with the Fortran
compiler has changed, for the BLAST+ wrappers the
default shell seems to have changed between bash
and sh).

I think the ToolShed system should be a role model of
the agreed standard set of system level dependencies.

Given that, it seems your lapack package has some
dependencies which are not necessarily present, and
this failure is cascading up to break NumPy and then
Biopython, and thus multiple tools on the Tool Shed :(

I do think that in the short term the best option is to
 further simplify package_numpy_1_7 not to use
lapack or ATLAS - although this is not ideal :(

On the positive side, your hard work setting up packages
for NumPy, lapack and Altas is drawing attention to the
need for a clearer set of base packages. :)
