The use of the {{Codeline|+atlas}} variant is encouraged as bugs exist for Apple's {{Codeline|accelerate}} framework in both MacOS 10.6 and 10.7.  Octave's developers have included a fix for MacOS 10.6, but the fix does not work for MacOS 10.7.  There is some commentary on this in various developers discussion forums.  For example, see [https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/issues/6649 this Homebrew thread (Octave 3.4 fails on lion)], [https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-sig-mac/2011-September/008564.html this R-Sig-Mac thread (R 2.13.1-patched, vecLib problem on Lion)], and [http://list.coin-or.org/pipermail/ipopt/2011-October/002610.html the COIN-OR thread (Ipopt - problems on OS X 10.7 Lion)].  Use of Apple's  {{Codeline|accelerate}} framework should also be avoided for {{Codeline|arpack}} and {{Codeline|qrupdate}}.  To install the recommended variants, use the {{Codeline|port}} commands below.

As a precaution against unexpected problems and a bloated App bundle, using consistent variants for Octave and its dependents is suggested.  For example, when using {{Codeline|+atlas}} make sure none of the dependents are using {{Codeline|+accelarate}}. Also, make sure no dependents are using the {{Codeline|+universal}} variant.  Using the {{Codeline|+gcc47}} variant is also recommended as all of Octave's dependents have a {{Codeline|+gcc47}} variant.  At the very least, following these suggestions will reduce the size of the bundle.  The name of Octave's dependent ports may be determined by the command below.
