The problem is, atlas is self-tuning. The idea is its build process
compiles itself in many different ways, and then actually tests the
performance on the target platform.  When cross compiling, you can set
it up so that it will ssh to the actual target and run the test
apps...but that requires the $target machine has (a) sshd and (b) a
unix-like shell.

This is obviously a difficult hurdle for $target=native win32/64.

One MAY be able to "cheat" by specifying, somehow, the "correct"
optimizations a priori, so that the build system doesn't try to do the
remote tests, but I'm not sure.

I do know that SOMEBODY out there has solved these issues wrt 32bit
win32, because MatLab actually uses ATLAS as its core BLAS
implementation, under the hood.
