...and libraries. The DTU machine died a very similar death inside
libsunperf when compiled for 64bit. (extract from Makeconf -- my config.site
has some ATLAS stuff inside which I suspect didn't take so is probably
misleading. I'm not going to do a clean build now....)

BLAS_LIBS = -xlic_lib=sunperf -lsunmath
CC = cc -xarch=v9b
CFLAGS = -xO5 -xlibmil -dalign
CPPFLAGS = -I/usr/local/include -I/opt/sfw/include

FFLAGS = -xO5 -xlibmil -dalign
FLIBS =  -L/usr/local/lib -lfui -lfai -lfai2 -lfsumai -lfprodai
-lfminlai -lfmaxlai -lfminvai -lfmaxvai -lfsu -lompstubs -lsunmath -lm
F77 = f95 -xarch=v9b
(If it is the same thing, base-Ex.Rout.fail dies inside example(kappa)
and example(svd) should segfault as well).
That segfault comes from inside libsunperf and occurs only in 64bit,
not 32bit, so I suspect a library bug. Following this up with Sun is
somewhere on my TODO list...
