Are you sure that make did not report any error messages? Unfortunately in
R0.63 make does not stop on errors, so it is easy to miss an error message
as it scrolls past.  Using a Red Hat 5.0 installation with fort77 as the
Fortran compiler there is a problem with the configuration: the
linker is set up as
	fort77 -export-dynamic
but fort77 doesn't recognise this flag.  If the -export-dynamic flag is
removed from Makeconf (and possibly etc/Makeconf) then I can compile.
