The problem of how to load lapack has come up before. I think we
(anyway, the people who responded about it) agreed that packaging
the lapack binaries is the best alternative, although unfortunately
we haven't made any progress towards that goal.
At this point, my advice is to copy the entire lapack subtree to a
user-writable directory (say /tmp) and load it from there.

Well, I guess such a division of labor would reduce the number of emails
for users, since they could avoid development discussions ...
I'm guessing some developers would subscribe to both, so it wouldn't
make much difference for them.
I like having just one list since topics quite often cross from
one genre to another, and when I send a message I don't need to worry
if the audience knows the context (since they must have gotten all
the same emails as me).
There already exists maxima-users <at> lists.sourceforge.net, although
it gets little traffic.
