The use of the <code>+atlas</code> variant is encouraged as bugs exist for Apple's 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 <code>arpack<\code> and <code>qrupdate<\code>.  To install the recommended variants, use the <code>port</code> 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.

Once an Octave port is installed the command below may be used to determine / verify the version and variants of {{Codeline|<nowiki>octave-local</nowiki>}} which are installed.
