I agree. I don't think it is necessarily a good idea for R to contain all
of libf2c that we might want to use. My question was much simpler:
Should we assume in creating libraries with C translations of FORTRAN that
ld -lf2c works, or should we explicitly include the C source for functions
that we call (as R does with pow_dd and pow_di)?
