C++-style comments in C are bugs (I am guilty of most of them), but
should have been solved in the SVN trunk. Concerning the fortran code,
it seems that the AIX fortran compiler does not like special characters
in comments nor code lines starting with &...

I would consider using the Gnu compiler instead of AIX fortran compiler,
