Then you should be sticking with BLAS, ATLAS, Scalapack, etc.

I can't believe the GSL people invented a new interface for the one
numerical interface which is now universal. Not to mention that they
ignored lots of faster, free libraries like ATLAS and FFTW... what's
the point of reinventing the wheel badly?
