After a lucky guess, I've determined that the problem had something to
do with the BLAS installation -- I had both openblas and atlas
installed, with Debian's "alternatives" set to default to openblas. I
uninstalled openblas (apt-get remove libopenblas-base) and rebuilt,
and now everything works. So I don't know exactly what the problem
was, but it looks like some sort of nasty interaction between which
library was being built against versus what library was being used at
runtime, or something along those lines.
