GotoBLAS replaces a few LAPACK routines where BLAS optimization is not
sufficient. Last time I built GotoBLAS2 it came with Netlib LAPACK
sources in the tarball.
What really matters for LAPACK performance is not even BLAS, but the
general matrix multiply routines *GEMM in BLAS. That is why AMD has made
a GPU version of ACML where matrix multiplication in BLAS can be
deferred to the ATI GPU.
