Updating Lapack Libraries shall not break compatibility, and rather
provide bug fixes I guess.

I agree with Keith O'Hara when she says that *"R is often used as a
front-end for libraries that do, so Rlapack-related linking errors are
arising more and more"*.
Maybe we could propose R-Core some SVN patches by ourselves for
R-alpha that update LAPLACK libraries and see how it looks like... :S
And in SVN:
> svn checkout https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk/ R-devel
> svn update
> svn diff > patch.diff
