I want to install "Matrix" using
> install.packages("Matrix")

After a while I get:
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for ATL_xerbla in -latlas... no
checking for dgemm_ in -lcxml... no
checking for dgemm_ in -ldxml... no
checking for dgemm_ in -lscs... no
checking for dgemm_ in -lcomplib.sgimath... no
checking for zherk in -lblas... no
checking for dgemm_ in -lblas... no
could not find your BLAS library
ERROR: Configuration failed for package `Matrix'

Where does the compiled code of BLAS have to reside?

(I used blas.tgz, faq.html from http://www.netlib.org/blas/)

May be it is stated in some help file, but I missed that.

Thank you very much.
