Atlas alternatives links not updated when upgrading to Meerkat

Bug Description

Binary package hint: libatlas3gf-sse2

When upgrading from Lemur to Meerkat, the /etc/alternatives links for the SSE2 Atlas libraries were not updated. (The libraries were moved by the upgrade.) The problem showed up as missing libraries when I tried to link against them. Both the BLAS and LAPACK libraries were affected. Fixing the alternatives by hand cured the problem.

[Note: This bug report was not filed from the upgraded machine. Sorry, can't file from there directly.]

For whatever else it's worth, the new libraries appear to work. Could someone please do whatever it takes to fix the 10.04 libraries?

quick manual fix:

ln -sf /usr/lib/atlas-base/atlas/libblas.a /etc/alternatives/libblas-3.a
ln -sf /usr/lib/atlas-base/atlas/ /etc/alternatives/
ln -sf /usr/lib/atlas-base/atlas/liblapack.a liblapack-3.a
ln -sf /usr/lib/atlas-base/atlas/ /etc/alternatives/

actually, there's also some more missing links in /usr/lib to libatlas.a
