Ah - thanks - that's good resource.

Yes, the manylinux-builds repo currently builds openblas for each
entry in the build matrix, so it's easily within time:

https://travis-ci.org/matthew-brett/manylinux-builds/builds/123643313

It would be good to think of a way of supporting a set of libraries,
such as libpng, freetype, openblas.  We might need to support both
64-bit and 32-bit versions as well.  Then, some automated build script
would by default pick up the latest of these for numpy, matplotlib
etc.
