Some days before I asked about a recommended linux environment for R.

Looks like, in principle it runs on all major linux distributions (debian
red hat, suse). There was a report of a problem with dynamically loading
Fortran on Red Hat 6.2.

Someone encountered trouble compiling library mclust with f77 and succeded
with f2c, but other people have succeeded compiling mclust with f77, so
there is no clear reason to prefer either f77 or f2c.

Hennig, Friedrich Leisch,
