I was wondering if anyone here running Ubuntu has managed to

I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit.

In previous versions of Ubuntu, all I had to do was to link against 
libblas.so.3 and liblapack.so.3 provided by the package

with a new package called libatlas-base-dev (ATLAS 3.8.4), which

routines that IPOPT needs?
2) Are there any workarounds or do I have to compile my own ATLAS from
