Greetings -- which BLAS/LAPACk are used by R 2.6.2 with gfortran 4.2  
on Leopard?

Macresearch.org instructs to use Accelerate, effectively switching from

# LIBPATH =  -L$/usr/local/lib
# BLAS = -llapack -lf77blas -latlas


BLAS = -Wl,-framework -Wl,Accelerate

-- per:


-- is this compatible with that packaged gfortran?

Also -- if I want to try out xlf from IBM, how does that affect the  
choices of BLAS/LAPACK/Accelerate -- are they compatible or does xlf  
come with its own?  (And why I can download trial versions of xlf for  
AIX/Linux but not for Mac?...)
