I have used the trail of Visual Studio 2008 (on full Server 2003) it
copmiles and runs well if you comment out the lines meantioned earlier on in
this thread.

I am planning to spend some time with the intel fortran compiler to try to
compile blas/lapack in the next few weeks. It is part of my current project,
so I will report back, Intel are usually very friendly to open source and if
that means you offer intel optimised binaries they should hopefully be


(P.S. I sent an output from the compile in an earlier thread, but I think it
was filtered I will re-post it and try to compress it a bit)
