Greetings! The good news is that in days, we should have some
optimized atlas blas libraries for a variety of recent processors.
The challenge is how to adapt the package -- when built on an Athlon,
PIII, and PII, the resulting binaries will run only on those
subarchitectures, (and much faster!) I suppose all binaries could be
included in the package, and only the appropriate one installed, but
how does this jive with the automatic build daemons? Such a package
would have to be partially built on several different machines. On
the other hand, I could have several different packages, each of which
would build only on a given subarch, and would produce a distinct
package name. That might not work so well with automated build
Any suggestions most appreciated.
