[Rd] Fixed BLAS tests for external BLAS library

We build R with dynamically linked BLAS and LAPACK libraries, in order
to use the AMD Core Math Library (ACML) multi-threaded implementation
of these routines on our 64 core servers. This is great, and our
users really appreciate it.
However, when building like this, make check fails on the reg-BLAS.R
test. The reason for this is that the expected test output is checked
using identical. By changing all uses of identical in this file to
all.equal, the tests pass.
Specifically, I run this command before make check:
$ sed -i -e 's/identical/all.equal/g' tests/reg-BLAS.R
I suggest that the test is fixed like this in the R source code.
Here is the configure command I use, on CentOS 7:
$ ./configure --with-system-zlib --with-system-bzlib --with-system-pcre \
