Hi David,
I used free trials of the Intel and PGI compilers to try to compile an external BLAS/LAPACK in conjunction with VS 2008. I also had no problems getting the C code to compile, but couldn't get linking to work succesfully with fortran stuff. I would not be surprised if we could get a licence from Intel or PGI to provide a pre-compiled exe.

It is hard to say, but I suspect a problem in your BLAS/LAPACK because
it fails on importing lapack_lite. Your error message is so generic
that it does not give any useful information.

I have worked quite a bit last december on 64 bits support using the
free compilers mingw - it worked OK for the C code, but I have not
managed yet to build a numpy with a full BLAS/LAPACK, which required a
fortran compiler. Since I can't have access to a fortran compiler on
that platform, I can't fix the remaining problems. And nobody stepped
in to fix the problems either,
