If for some reasons, Christopher does not want to use fortran compiler
at all, I just want to mention that on solaris (and linux), it should be
possible to link with BLAS/LAPACK without a fortran compiler, if using
sun performance libraries, since they do not depend on fortran at all
(but do provide fortran calling convention).
But it is certainly easier to use a fortran compiler, since this
configuration is supported out of the box.
