I am attempting to build a recent version of octave as a 32--bit i686 package for RHEL 7. I have installed the BLAS and LAPACK packages but ./configure does not detect the libraries. I have the 32 bit packages including the -devel packages installed as seen below:
I have also tried passing the library paths in ./configure option as:
./configure --prefix=/home/jferreira/builds/octaveCompile --with-blas=/usr/lib/libblas.so --with-lapack=/usr/lib/liblapack.so
I still get: configure: error: BLAS and LAPACK libraries are required.
Any help would be appreciated.
