Although lapack is mentioned in the official Dockerfile of OpenFace, they also have also commented this may be not the minimal dependencies.

And if we change openblas to blas-openblas in the PKGBUILD and add VERBOSE=1 to make, the build commands show no link to liblapack.so. Moreover, at the end of the output of extra-x86_64-build -- -I dlib-19.24.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst, namcap shows

openface W: Dependency openblas detected and implicitly satisfied
openface W: Dependency included, but may not be needed ('blas-openblas')

So I decide to keep using openblas until there is a report showing that this package can be accelerated by the lapack.

I think this application is meant to use the full suite of OpenBLAS libraries, so you should switch to blas-openblas depends.

Please check the changes around Arch openblas and blas-openblas. You might need to switch depends from openblas to blas-openblas. Arch openblas package is incomplete, only blas-openblas carries the full OpenBlas Lapack suite.

Background:

Arch announced on June 14, 2023 a new blas-openblas repo package, which finally offers the full suite of OpenBLAS Lapack, with their blas implementation and corresponding cblas/lapacke interfaces.
