Thanks top all who replied. Maybe someone else can benefit from this, so 
here's a summary of the steps to do:

*Create the atlas & lapack libraries as described in the INSTALL-instructions 
that come with ATLAS. However, don't choose standard linux install (in make 
config step), so you get the chance to add fPIC to the all the compiler flags.
*for every static library, extract all the .o files to a temporary directory:
ar -x libatlas.a
*put all these in a shared lib:
gcc -shared -Wl,-soname, -o *.o
*put this lib in the right place

I remember trying this on earlier versions of octave(2.1.29?), but only now I 
succeeded. Did something change in 2.1.34? (Or maybe the lapack-libs in 
RedHat are compiled in another way now?) Anyway, it works great now, thanks!
