I got this problem previous to 0.63 because there was a Solaris 2.5 f77 on my
path and f77 was being checked before g77 which I was using for Solaris 2.6. The
f77 was in a site library, and since right now we have a mix of 2.5 and 2.6  so
I couldn't remove it. I fixed the problem by putting a link high on my path
called f77 pointing to gnu/sun5.6/bin/g77.

This would not explain why 0.62.4 works for you and 0.63 does not, unless the
order in which fortran compilers is checked has changed between these versions.
Perhaps g77 is being checked first now and you have a g77 for Solaris 2.5.
