Bug Description

After upgrade from precise to trusty: a selfcompiled python program broke with:

checking the lib on trusty:

objdump -tTrR /usr/lib/ | grep ATL_cpttrsm

and on precise:

[0]root@ex-kmos:~# lsb_release -a; objdump -tTrR /usr/lib/ | grep ATL_cpttrsm
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS
Release: 12.04
Codename: precise

00000000002eacc0 g DF .text 0000000000000279 Base ATL_cpttrsm_nt

000000000052d530 R_X86_64_JUMP_SLOT ATL_cpttrsm_nt

So the ABI has changed (a symbol removed) but the SONAME of the lib the same.
That's AFAIU a bug. At least it broke programs here.

I get the same problem when I try to setup our python programs:
python install --record files.txt

Upgrading numpy via
# pip install --upgrade numpy
solved the issue for me.
