$ locate libf77blas.so
$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/libf77blas.so.2.3
atlas2: /usr/lib/libf77blas.so.2.3

So it is in the atlas2 package.  If you were installing the Debian
package for r-base the installing application should have required the
atlas2 package.  Debian packages for the latest versions of R are
available on the CRAN archives in the bin/linux/debian directory.
