Definitely g77, then -- gfortran doesn't exist on this machine.

No options, it was entirely the defaults.

The "two years" was a guess -- it must have been early 2007.  

I do see "lsame" in the lapack that's on the system.  Looking
inside /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy/linalg/lapack_lite.so,
I do find the string "lsame_" in a few spots in among the binary.
So it looks for all the world like lsame_ should be available,
but for some reason it's not being found ("undefined symbol: lsame_").
