Has anyone tried to build R on Suns by linking to the versions of BLAS and 
LINPACK in the Sun Performance Library rather than the standard versions 
included in the distribution? On the face of it this would seem to be a highly 
desirable thing to do since these versions of the routines are more efficient 
and can exploit parallelism on multiprocessor machines.
