Yes, ATLAS upstream has always been smoking deep crack. It looks like 
OpenBLAS is the much better option, now that it is available. (ATLAS used to 
be the best available as Free Software back when GotoBLAS was still 
proprietary, but now that the Goto code has been freed, ATLAS is not looking 
so great anymore.)
