Yes, this is the right place.

BOOST_NUMERIC_BINDINGS_FORTRAN defaults to true and subsequent checks for
routines using row-major will fail with boost::STATIC_ASSERTION_FAILURE.
defined globally compilation completes sucessfully and resulting code
seems to work as expected.

Can you give a small example that demonstrates the problem?

I think it is by desgin (don't include both the clapack bindings and the
lapack bindings in one source file).

I don't understand why one would want to mix clapack and lapack: Don't you
need to convert between row major and column major all the time when
doing so?
I always use the lapack bindings (but link against the fortran atlas
library), and that works well for me. The reason for not using clapack is
that I also use other fortran code, so I chose to do everything with
column major matrices.
