And thank you for the positive answer. The SlackBuild for ATLAS is 
actually ready(*) and I'm going to submit it. You can download the 
LAPACK SlackBuild that I modified to take advantage of ATLAS from


take a look at it and maybe give it a try. There you can find also the 
ATLAS SlackBuild which was recently tested by Aleksandar Samardzic (just 
change lapack to atlas).

BTW, I don't think that we can put ATLAS and LAPACK in one SlackBuild 
because the sources are on two different sites.

Best regards,

Serban Udrea

(*) As ready as software can be :-)
