IBM's xlc will also find the appropriate framework, but as you can see 
this is only a link-time option and has nothing to do with finding headers.


   #include <vecLib/vecLib.h>

will find the appropriate header without any command-line options. Using

   #include <clapack.h>

will not.

Fortunately, neither one is used nor needed by lapack_litemodule.c, so 
for this case, no include-path needs to be specified.
