I think gcc 3.0 may be the problem. R. Clint Whaley, the head developer on
ATLAS, regularly harps on how poor gcc3 does with ATLAS. This is definitely a
bummer. I think he has even posted a bug report about some specific issues and
basically been told that is wasn't gonna get fixed. He recommends using pre3.0
compilers for ATLAS.
Here is a note that discusses it.
