| the configure script of Octave 2.9.6 (not yet in the archive) fails
| to detect the cholmod library if atlas3-base-dev is used for both
| liblapack3 and libblas3.
| Installing lapack3-dev lets the test succeed.
| I attach a snippet from config.log (this is gcc-4.0 on AMD64). Am I
| wrong in my thinking that atlas3-base-dev should provide those two
| libs (or the symbols from them)?
they should, at least that's what I think.
I checked on my installation and atlas3-base-dev provides lapack
(dz)potrf_ are in lapack.

what happens when you add -L/usr/lib/atlas to the command line without 
installing lapack3-dev ?

Perhaps I should also make ufsparse depend on lapack3-dev: that should 
solve the issue and then /etc/ld.so.conf does the job to get the 
proper dynamic library.
