that's clear. I've never installed it manually but using 

$ port install gnucash

I haven't noticed that py26-numpy has installed atlas and gcc44 but
recently I've tried to upgrade gnucash. Then I've noticed that atlas
takes hours and hours to install. I think for the average gnucash user
(and maybe for other ports that depends on py26-numpy) atlas is a heavy
and not necessary dependency. atlas should be installed by users who
explicitly select it.
