when installing the pre-compiled math/blas package the library is not in a usable state: The library requires libgfortran.so.3 which in turn links against libgcc_s.so.1.
Of the latter a version is installed in /lib/ that is too old to be used by libgfortran.so.3 and running a program linked against libblas.so.2 will complain about requiring some version 4.6 of libgcc_s.so.1.
One can work around this bug by manually deleting /lib/libgcc_s.so.1, because then the version from the gcc package that was pulled in is used, but this is located in /usr/local/lib/gcc48 (in my case).
I'm completely new to FreeBSD, so maybe there is a better way to resolve this.
Maintainer feedback, please!
