Last time I tried to upgrade ATLAS I failed. I'll try again, since I do have some 
more spare time next week. Nevertheless, ATLAS does not provide much more than a 
BLAS implementation. Thus, if trillions has problems with the newest LAPACK 
version, the LAPACK+ATLAS combination should stick to version 3.5.0 of LAPACK.

There is also OpenBLAS on Slackbuilds. To my knowledge, in spite of its name, it 
can provide also LAPACK functionality. But the maintainer of OpenBLAS may need to 
give more details on this.
