The above is meaningless - use "R CMD ldd" to get the actual paths.
You can override the locations using LD_LIBRARY_PATH but I'd stay away form that as it tends to mess other things up (if you don't know what you're doing).

You don't want to re-link anything - it's already linked with shared BLAS support as you can see above.
