With Daniil's help and patience I can provide a workaround to this problem: before 
using the SlackBuild rename /usr/bin/g++-gcc-5.3.0 to something not containing 
gcc, but don't use just g++ for the new name.  Rename it back after ATLAS got 
compiled. Finally make sure /usr/bin/g++ is a proper link to /usr/bin/g++-gcc-5.3.0.

I'll file a bug report and see what ATLAS's maintainer comes up with.

Best regards,
