Ops, I was not aware that Numeric-24.0 was out. Anyway, I've tried to
compile it, but I did not succeed with my Debian system:

gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes 
-fPIC -IInclude -IPackages/FFT/Include -IPackages/RNG/Include 
-I/usr/include/python2.4 -c Src/lapack_litemodule.c -o 
gcc -pthread -shared build/temp.linux-i686-2.4/Src/lapack_litemodule.o 
-L/usr/lib/atlas -llapack -lcblas -lf77blas -latlas -lg2c -o 
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -llapack
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

The installation for Numeric usually worked on my system. Perhaps it
is now assumed that lapack should be a pre-requisite?

Yes, please, backward compatibility with pre-Numeric 24.0 would be a
nice thing to have.
