You're probably completely right here - I'm so used to have some kind
of BLAS/LAPACK installed (through Intel MKL at the moment), that are
in turn usually notoriously hard to build the package for, that I
forgot to mention that in the README file for boost-bindings something
like that...  So if you could create packages say for BLAS/LAPACK from
Netlib, that would be great indeed.
