Yes Guy, that was it. I realized that after I sent the mail. :-) There
was no dependency conflict generated when I installed g77. Should
there be? g77 will work in the fact that it will compile, but not
link. As for the f2c and fort77, they don't seem to work with the
rather large piece of fortran code that I have. Performance is also
a big issue, so g77 is the way to go. The code compiles fine on about
4 other platforms (using non-gnu f77), but still doesn't compile on the
linux box. I going to work on that tonight.
To all those who replied - Thanks alot!
