It is. The implementation, however, is not necessarily focused on
efficiency (more on correctness). In my experience if your code only
uses vector operations (level 1 blas) and your vectors are not extremely
large then there isn't much of a performance gain from linking to a
tuned library like atlas or acml. For Level 2/3 blas operations and
matrices larger than say 30x30 using a library that takes the cache and
architecture into account makes a large difference.
