If this is Unix(-alike) ....

You need libatlas.a, libcblas.a, libf77blas.a, and you want to specify
them as "-latlas -lcblas -lf77blas".  *However* they need to be in your
library path, and if they are, configure will find them.  So just

set the library path as needed (e.g. LIBS in config.site)
rm config.cache

will make use of ATLAS.  See the R-admin.html manual for more details.
