Which platform are you working on? Which compiler version?
We just solved a segfault on import on red hat 5 gcc 4.1.2. Very likely
caused by a compiler bug. See https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/5163

The build log is complaining about your atlas being to small, possibly
the installation is broken?
