Is there a downside to having atlas depend on gcc44 while everything
else depends on gcc43?  Also, is it "worthwhile" to eliminate this
errant dependency now, rather than later (presumably by removing and
reinstalling atlas)?  I would guess that upcoming changes in 1.9 will
not retroactively solve such problems...


PS Is there any way to respond to a thread "properly" if you receive
digested mails from this list?  I assume that my just editing the
subject will not be sufficient for proper threading, we'll see...
