I really appreciate the great work done by the GRETL team. Not only is it a fantastic
econometrics tool, the source code is invaluable for someone who would want to make
something similar to GRETL: importing & exporting data in various formats, doing
complex calculations and then tying them up in a neat GUI, etc.
I have one question though. I tend to use multithreaded ATLAS with almost all my
languages: C/C++, Java, Python, Octave and R. I would like to do the same with GRETL. I
think there is a way to do this but I couldn't figure it out myself. So if someone
could guide me with the options and flags for ./configure, I would be grateful.
My machine: Ubuntu 64-Bit OS, core2duo and 3GB RAM.

First of all, thanks! But what about the function package GUI, is that
