[Slackbuilds-users] Call for testing: BLAS/LAPACK

I have updated the blas and lapack Slackbuilds to version 3.5.0 in my
user/elyk/lapack branch. I know these are dependencies of several
other packages and I would appreciate any feedback if you maintain any
packages that don't actually work with it. I've built octave and it
seems to be OK.
Two important changes:
1. Upstream has added cmake as a build system. This makes it easier
to build a shared library, and I'd like confirmation that this library
still works for everyone. Note that they set the SONAME to
lib(blas|lapack).so, not lib(blas|lapack).so.3 as we manually did in
the script previously.
2. lapack should auto-detect between blas and atlas, preferring atlas
if it's installed. I believe this removes the need for a separate
lapack-atlas Slackbuild, but I'll leave that for Serban to decide. It
does not detect OpenBLAS; that package provides its own LAPACK
Thanks in advance!
