An unoptimized blas/lapack is sufficient for our usage.  Should I then
place the netlib blas and lapack in my source tree somewhere?  If so,
is there an example of how to make the build scripts compile and link
the library?

I would like to make compiling PyAMG as simple as possible.  We only
use BLAS/LAPACK on small matrices (e.g. 3x3 to 6x6), so speed is

Thanks for your help.
