Hi Peter,


Matrix multiplication functions %*% and crossprod() now use a
        level-3 BLAS routine dgemm.  When R is linked with the ATLAS
        or other enhanced BLAS libraries this can be substantially
        faster than the previous code

I have just installed ATLAS under my home directory on my Sun Ultra 5
(Solaris 8); how do I link these libraries to R-1.3.0? (I probably want
to know this before I install it :) If I add the ATLAS library path to
my LD_LIBRARY_PATH, will this be sufficient?

Thanks in advance for your help,
