I read this thread,

but didn't see this post:


Unfortunately,  I can't get this to work either, the configure step  
seems to
end normally, although there is a warning about "missing packages. but

make -j8 && make install

ends with error:  cannot use Fortran.  But
yzzy: which gfortran /usr/local/bin/gfortran yzzy:
gfortran --version
GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.2.3

As for the binary install,  the pkg installer produced eventually
a window that said "Failed"   in red rather than the usual green
Installation Successful  -- but it wasn't clear where to look
for the entrails.  I've replaced the old config.log on the web
with the new one based on the recommended configure lines.
