How?  I've struggled with trying to create ATLAS RPMs in order to 
maintain it locally, but the rpm program doesn't have the hooks to 
distinguish between the various architectures ATLAS supports;  it 
distinguishes between Athlon and Pentium, for example, and an ATLAS 
library built on the former core dumps on the latter.

It would also be nice if ATLAS could be made a shared library, but 
that's also not supported at this time.  Without it, Numeric and 
numarray built against ATLAS inherit its architecture dependence.  It 
makes maintaining all of this at our site a real pain.
