Another thought is to commit lapack source to CVS as a single tar.gz file.
And removing BLAS,INSTALL,TESTING, and TIMING directories from the
LAPACK distribution (keeping only SRC directory) will reduce the
size of LAPACK sources considerably (39MB -> 15MB or 2MB when gzipped).

Notice that BLAS sources shipped with LAPACK are not complete. So,
the above applies also to BLAS.
