Locate libcblas.a and add that dir to the library_dirs_list.
Eg on my system, /usr/local/lib/ATLAS/lib/Linux_P4SSE2_2/libcblas.a

library_dirs_list = ['/usr/local/lib/ATLAS/lib/Linux_P4SSE2_2']

Do the same for cblas.h and add it to the include_dirs var in, on my system it is /usr/local/lib/ATLAS/include/cblas.h, so

include_dirs = ['/usr/local/lib/ATLAS/include/', '/usr/include/atlas']

Then python install *should* work.
