|[eigen] Updating the Benchmarks|

Finally I have the change to try out Eigen. I'm going to write a
Bachelor thesis (I'm studying physics) on pulse EPR simulations. I want
to use Eigen for that. To get my feet wet, I'd like to update the
benchmarks first, which should also be useful for you all.
I think I'll be able to get hold of an i7 machine with 8 or 4gigs of
ram, running squeeze 64bit. I can easily install the open libs they have
there, but I'm not sure whether I should try to get hold of the unfree
libs for comparison. Most notably:
# INTEL_MKL: seems to be commercial? Or can I use the "try" version?
# ACML: Closed-source but seems to be free for download?
# GOTO: no idea where I can get this?
If you have any idea, then I could provide you with the required
benchmarks. I'll also increase the size of the matrix, since my problem
will have a 9000x9000 matrix approximately. I'm planning to use the
Eigen 3 branch. Which leads me to my next question: I am not able to
install the benchmarks there:
that is the "default" branch in mercurial, eigen2 installed from squeeze
repo, version is 2.0.15-1. Any help on this?
