Yes, that's what I did.  I recently switched back from a locally compiled GotoBLAS to VecLib because that latter is consistently faster on my current machine (Retina MacBook Pro) and OS (10.8).  I've previously had issues with VecLib BLAS that prompted me to explore various alternatives, but they seem to have gone away ... so I'm very much in favour of resuscitating VecLib BLAS in the Mac installer package.
