Hi everybody:

I am writing a package that includes C code that uses the BLAS library. My
Makevars looks like


If I check and build the package under Linux on my own computer everything
works fine. However, if I submit the package to win-builder I get the
following error messages:

g++ -shared -s -o bzipl.dll tmp.def ars.o bzipl.o cvm_arrays.o cvm_axpym.o

To me it looks like somehow the BLAS routines are not called correctly under

I would be very grateful if anybody could help me.

Thanks a lot,
