Use R CMD ldd /usr/lib/R/modules/lapack.so to get an accurate picture.
I think you need to ask this on a Debian list. The R developers do not
recommend the use of an external Lapack library (and the Debian ones have
had `patches' that were incorrect before now). (See the discussion in the
R-admin manual.) In this case I guess that it has not been linked against
the right set of external libraries for your particular machine.

Should work if you build R from the sources with the default options.
