#82 fixed document use of MS Visual Studio files lou stefan

The documentation on the MSDevStudio project page should be updated (or moved into the BuildTools? wiki and updated there).

A link under "Quick Source Download, Build, and Installation Guide" in the BuildTools? wiki would be appreciated.

#121 fixed discontinue ThirdParty/Blas and Lapack stefan stefan

I think of just forgetting about ThirdParty/Blas and ThirdParty/Lapack for the new setup, because I don't think it is so useful anymore:

  • Most Linux distributions bring blas and lapack with their package managers. It's often only the reference version (Netlib), but that's the same we were building anyway.
  • Mac OS X comes with (probably optimized) installations of Blas and Lapack in the Accelarate framework.
  • Msys2/MinGW on Windows seems to bring OpenBlas and Lapack with its package manager.
  • Intels MKL is available as community edition for free.
  • Building Blas and Lapack from source requires a Fortran compiler, which is extra work to be installed on Linux (easy), Mac OS X (possible), MinGW (relatively easy), Windows/MSVC (ifort costs money).
  • ThirdParty/Blas and Lapack was building only a subset of Blas and Lapack, which sometimes is not sufficient, requiring extra maintenance work. Also it is extra maintenance work (we do not even keep up with using the latest versions of the Netlib Lapack).

I would then also remove the f2c utility in BuildTools, for which I have no idea whether it is still working.
