R and parallel BLAS

Running R with parallel BLAS seems to be as easy under Gentoo ~amd64 as: eselect blas set atlas-threads.  Sweet.

update: and rebuild Matrix / MCMCglmm within R, since those are outside portage

update: ... rebuild R with +threads use flag...

update: MCMCglmm uses CSparse so no speed-up, but JAGS should like it.
