Compiling from Source on Mint and adding ATLAS

I was able to follow along and have Octave running from source on Mint 13
The default install is 3.2, and I went to GNU Octave, version 3.6.3
(I download and read the README to figure out the dependencies.)
Got greedy and wanted to add ATLAS.  Thankfully there are instructions:

liblapack.a was created following the above steps.
Created in:
Copied to:
My system is x64, I also have a lib32 for those empty at the moment.

Following the recipe in compiling atlas for octave:
Neruda tmp # gcc -fPIC -lgfortran -shared *.o -Wl,-soname, -o

*/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgfortran
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status*

Path issues perhaps?  Thank you good soul who reads this over the holidays.
The lapack source is on a drive partition, away from home:
