gcc44-compiled builds of some packages

I'm trying to build cp2k in EL-5 branch, but it needs gfortran 4.4.0 or newer
and upstream is unwilling to support older gfortran. So I have to use
BR: gcc44-gfortran and do some patching. However, cp2k needs blas and lapack
(or atlas, with a little help), which links to libgfortran.so.1 (since it was
built with gcc-gfortran). Linking to both ligfortran.so.3 and .so.1 is not
a good idea, so I'd like some feedback from the maintainers of atlas and lapack
(on which atlas has BuildRequires:) on how to proceed. I believe building
additional subpackages from atlas and lapack containing libraries with modified
sonames is the best option.

What do you think?
