The scipy and numeric docs don't know anything about the upcoming new Gentoo
scheme, where liblapack can be a front for libatlas or any other library that
That's actually the beauty of the new system: even if you have a program which
in its configure scripts does not know anything about alternate lapack
implementations, its still possible to use it with ATLAS.
But if you're building SciPy on a non-Gentoo system (or on the the current
Gentoo, i.e. before the switch), then it's obviously necessary to include the
correct atlas info.
