I took it some time ago, so I could have missed something in the meantime.
I will look again.

A tough discussion with R developers. They consider the standard Blas

For what I saw they have the tendency to make their own version of any
lib that does not fit on their exact expectation, for the same reason
they do not consider libtool and have a very unusual build.
