   I also exaggerated a bit, because this time (with ATLAS-3.8.0), it's not
properly configuring:

[rshepard at salmo /opt/src/slackbuilds/ATLAS/ATLAS_linux]$ ../configure -Fa
alg -fPIC --with-netlib-lapack=/opt/src/lapack-3.1.1/lapack_LINUX.a
make: nfig' is up to date.
./xconfig -d s /opt/src/slackbuilds/ATLAS/ATLAS_linux/../ -d b

   What's strange is that I had no problems with prior versions, nor with
this version on my notebook running Slackware-12.0 (this workstation is
still running Slackware-11.0). Also, I've no idea why it's looking for
64-bit pointer width on a 32-bit CPU, nor why it's trying to build when I
issue the configure command.

   This box has gcc-3.4.6-i486-1, gcc-g++-3.4.6-i486-1, and
gcc-g77-3.4.6-i486-1 installed.

   See anything I've overlooked?

   OK. But I'd still like to understand why the ATLAS configuration failed
