Follow-up Comment #55, bug #45659 (project octave):

Thanks for the patch.

__octave_config_info__ isn't the right place for this.  That is supposed to
hold information about the system configuration, i.e., what happens in the
config script, so that would be something like --with-blas="-lblas" was used
as a configuration option, or the configure script decided to use -lblas.  The
actual version of blas or lapack that is being used is not known until run
time, so I think this information belongs somewhere else.  Also, I want to
avoid adding more static variables if possible.  How much time does it take to
execute the discovery functions?  Is there any harm in just providing
functions that compute this info when the version function needs it?
