Ture, then I think it was that it was recomended to use gcc3 instead of 4 :) Me
neither have ever written a single line of fortran, but sometimes I wrap some
fortran code with f2py.
I used SuSE for many years but once I tried ubuntu I realised that all libs and
packages I was fighting with to get them compiled (like many other SuSE users
apparently) are part of the distribution and just work. Keep that in mind the
next time you plan to upgrade your system...
