Hi Robert,

Thank you for your help.

I am not using the --fcompiler flag.  The FORTRAN compilers I have 
installed are:

f77: Sun WorkShop 6 update 2 FORTRAN 77 5.3 Patch 111691-07 2004/04/23
Usage: f77 [ options ] files.  Use 'f77 -flags' for details
basil> f90 -V
f90: Sun WorkShop 6 update 2 Fortran 95 6.2 Patch 111690-10 2003/08/28
Usage: f90 [ options ] files.  Use 'f90 -flags' for details
