FYI, the author of netlib-java filed an issue with OpenBLAS for that:
https://github.com/xianyi/OpenBLAS/issues/296

Unfortunately, upstream is reluctant to change this because they're worried 
about people trying to mix their LAPACK with another BLAS which doesn't 
provide the symbols their optimized LAPACK needs. There ought to be a better 
solution for that problem.

Do you know why ATLAS changed to monolithic libraries? For the same reason?
