The problem is a distribution problem (that is how the binaries were 
built). Do you need optimized BLAS/LAPACK (for fast linear algebra) ? If 
not, would you mind trying those ?


Note that those do not use any optimized libraries (no ATLAS, no fftw, 
etc...). This is the bare minimal to make it work on any x86 machine (no 
need for SSE/SSE2).
