    While I realize that dynamic library support in Mac OS X is Beta (as indicated in the lib/Makefile comments), I have been using it successfully with Atlas v3.9.20.  Today I tried v3.9.45 and noticed that the behavior of "make dylib" is now different - all the libraries are put in one libatlas.dylib instead of separate ones with names matching the static libs as was the case for v3.9.20.

    So, the question is, why the change?  This requires me to configure the atlas library names differently depending on whether I use static or dynamic libs which is inconvenient.
