Hi Erin,

The R extensions manual should be helpful here -- in particular, see the
sections on the 'src/Makevars' file and configuration of the Fortran


In particular, in your 'src/Makevars' file, you'll likely want to set the
FC variable to choose the Fortran compiler, and FCFLAGS to choose the
appropriate compilation flags. As an example, you can see how one might set
these flags to compile code with the address sanitizer active:


(Note that this example uses the user-level '~/.R/Makevars' file rather
than the package-level 'src/Makevars' file, but the crux is the same)

Hope this gets you on the right track,
