Has anyone tried using f2c for the Fortran code? this would give us a
C-only option, much easier to build. If native Fortran gives notably
better performance, it could be optionally enabled, kind of like ATLAS
Just a thought.
Anyway, it sound like my issue is not a deal-breaker, but rather an
oversight, so it can be fixed. If there are folks that can commit to
doing the builds, then most folks will be happy.
