If you do take the RPM route (I ended up doing that when installing the
Compaq Fortran for Linux), you need to use the --nodeps flag with the rpm
command (man rpm for more info). Since the deb and rpm databases are
separate, rpm is assuming you don't have the standard c libraries installed
(which you do, but since they are installed from a deb, rpm can't check).
Yes, it does "pollute" your system with rpms, but I figure since those 4 or 5
rpms required don't affect anything else on the system, the shortcut this
time was ok.
