Building Atlas can take a long long time (up to ~ 6/7 hours) depending on your processor type. So don’t be too in a hurry.
I’m currently working on the next version (3.9.54) but it fails during the configuration phase. On the other hand, llvm/clang 3.0 arrives, with AVX support, so it might make sense to postpone atlas 3.9.54 until llvm 3.0 release.

Il mondo che Atlas porta è un pò complesso ;)
Buona giornata ciononostante !
