Presumably that could be added to the Fedora package as a patch.  It's 
SMOP to check the CPU and load the proper library, if someone who knew 
how were to do it.  Other distros might also use such a patch.  Then 
there would be only one package per arch, containing all variants.

I haven't been able to get that to work [1], but it does take over 3 
hours to fail.  I don't think most users can be expected to build their 
own ATLAS.
