Bug Description

$ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu Natty (development branch)
Release: 11.04

$ apt-cache policy libatlas-dev
libatlas-dev:
  Installed: 3.8.3-29

Symbolic links for the following are missing:

libatlas.so
libcblas.so
libf77blas.so
liblapack_atlas.so

The result is that linking fails:

$ gcc -lcblas main.c
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcblas
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Creating symlinks between lib*.so -> lib*.so.3gf fixes the problem.

On a related note, having two alternatives (one for .so and one for .so.3gf) is confusing. It would be cleaner to have only one instead of trying to keep them in sync (LP #769175).
