Including LAPACKE in your package won't help you in this case, since
it is not your package but one of its dependencies that needs it. So
LAPACKE needs to be installed when that dependency is installed, which
happens before your package gets installed.

How do you expect the dependencies to get installed? Is that done by
an admin before the package installation?
