Check out http://math-atlas.sourceforge.net/. An even better option if you're using Mac OSX is to install fink on your mac (http://fink.sourceforge.net). This will allow you to easily install a number of useful software packages. Once you have fink installed, you can generate the BLAS (I believe LAPACK is also installed) libraries by doing the following:


1. sudo cp /sw/fink/dists/unstable/main/finkinfo/sci/atlas* /sw/fink/dists/local/main/finkinfo


2. sudo fink install atlas


You will then need to answer a number of questions for the interactive installer, and the installation will take some time as atlas tunes the routines for your machine. Also, you should probably install g77 prior to installing atlas (sudo fink install g77). Good luck.
