I was wondering the same thing as well.  Since I am only installing
atlas to get gimp to work anyway I would prefer not to have to build
it for some miniscule speed increase in some obscure filter (if gimp
even actually ends up using any parts of blas or lapack, but I guess
it's possible it's important).
