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.
