Don't worry about clicking on it. What happens when you run 'file
/opt/intel/lib/ia32/libifport.so.5'? The reason I'm asking is because

seems to indicate that the dynamic linker cannot find libifport.so.5. One
way this can happen is if it's in directory that's not on a
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Can you check that it is? Try 'ldd
/home/john/LREWI15_TIO/./swat2009_i64_calibrate.so'. Make sure that
there is a line in there that looks something like (I'm guessing):
libifport.so.5 => /opt/intel/lib/ia32/libifport.so.5 (...)
Also, do you have other programs on that system that you compiled with
Intel's Fortran compiler that work correctly?
And let me echo Dirk's suggestion to familiarize yourself with R
packages -- what happens when you load a package, and how the package
mechanism interacts with compilation and linking of dynamic libraries.
To try otherwise will only cause you a lot of frustration, as you've
probably already discovered.
