If this only affects blas, then I suspect blas is at fault. Did you try
running ldconfig as root? Try running "ldconfig -p | grep libf77blas.so".
To be honest, that symlink mess may be the problem. There is no reason for
two soname links (IOW, kill the one in /lib).

Partial upgrades to XF4 are going to cause some issues, I'm sure. If you
feel really bold (and from the looks of it, you seem to like punishment :)
try install xserver-xfree86 and configuring the new Xserver.
