I think lapack3gf depending directly on atlas3gf-base is the root of the
problem. I would suggest moving atlas3gf-base dependency to recommends.
Thus atlas3gf-base will be pulled onto enduser installations but not
on buildd's (where recommends are not installed).
"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
