Hmm, tricky. I don't think there is a good way. On OS X, lapack_opt
pretty eagerly tries to accept Accelerate.framework. You can fake it
out by using ATLAS=1 (but you must not have ATLAS or anything else).
On other platforms, you can probably use ATLAS=None (though Lord help
you if you have MKL, too).
