My impression is (I may be wrong) that there's no web page which clearly states
what the requirements are. For example,

BLAS, LAPACK - hard requirements
ATLAS - optional

May be I just didn't find it but after running a search for LAPACK about 4 times 
I got:

You triggered the wiki's surge protection by doing too many requests in a short
Please make a short break reading the stuff you already got.
When you restart doing requests AFTER that, slow down or you might get locked
out for a longer time!

Four is not too many and it was a short time because there were no results.
If I was new to this I would probably not come back.
