Hey Andrew,

You can use any of the binaries from Anaconda and redistribute them as long
as you "cite" Anaconda --- i.e. tell your users that they are using
Anaconda-derived binaries.     The Anaconda binaries link against ATLAS.

The binaries are all at http://repo.continuum.io/pkgs/

In case you weren't aware:

Another way you can build and distribute an "application" is to build a
'conda' meta-package which lists all the dependencies.   If you add to this
meta-package 1) an icon and 2) an entry-point, then your application will
automatically show up in the "Anaconda Launcher" (see this blog-post:
http://www.continuum.io/blog/new-launcher ) and anyone with the Anaconda
Launcher app can install/update your package by clicking on the icon next
to it.

Users can also install your package with conda install or using the
