If we go for 'class system_info' method then I think we could keep all in
one file (similar to build_flib that holds all Fortran compiler
descriptions). I don't think that this file would get very
large. Currently we need info only about atlas,x11,fftw (may be also
Numeric if NumArray becomes usable, etc). So, unless someone implements it
first (as I'll be probably busy in coming days), I would suggest


for holding the base class 'system_info' and its derivatives
atlas, x11, fftw, etc.
