For performance reasons, I compiled GSL with icc (intel C compiler).
./configure with some flags,
make check and
I had to remove libgsl0ldbl, which is used by a number of packages (
bogofilter bogofilter-bdb ink-generator inkscape libgsl0ldbl octave-gsl octave-statistics octave-vrml pyxplot pyxplot-doc qtiplot). I had to remove these packages, run checkinstall to install gsl from source. Then when I tried to install the packages back, they wanted to erase my version of gsl and install the pre-compiled one.
Is there any way to make those packages use the source-compiled version of gsl?
