The results follow [snipped here], but I believe the moral of the

Yes, true enough. Though I think we're on safe ground in reckoning
that on the Mac we ought to hand off dgemm to VecLib except perhaps
for very small matrices.
Can I ask -- this applies to Marcin too -- the BLAS that's
identified by gretl as "netlib": is this really netlib and not ATLAS
or OpenBLAS in disguise? Based on Artur's information I can believe
it is in fact plain Netlib BLAS with heavy optimization by the
compiler, but I'd just like to check.
