I believe most of the linux distributions do not have
`lapack.pc', if you install certain implementation of lapack
like the one provided by netlib.org, or the one with
`ATLAS', or the one provided by intel mkl.  So, using such
pkgconfig file is rather useless.  A configure system like
the one used in `hmatrix' should be used to actually adapt
various kinds of systems.
