My understanding, but that's only from having read the distutils
sources, is that you don't check for cblas. You implement a acml
checker, like MKL, but you have to define NO_ATLAS_INFO to 1 to say
that cblas is not available (if you read the setup.py of numpy.core,
which needs cblas and not blas, you will see that's how it is decide
whether _dotblas should be built or not).
