Dear all,

In the new version of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection),
namely version 4.0, the Fortran compiler has been completely
rewritten: it is no longer g77 but gfortran, which is actually
a Fortran 95 compiler.  More info on

For instance, gcc 4.0.1 (with the gcc-gfortran package)
is the default compiler in the Mandriva 2006 distribution.

To take this into account, in the local_setting file in Lorene
root directory, "g77" must be replaced
by "gfortran" with the options " -ffixed-form -ffixed-line-length-none".
Also "-lg2c" must be replaced by "-lgfortran".
A corrected template file is available from Lorene CVS server:
(Type cvs update to get it).

Another consequence regards the installation of PGPLOT:
some modification must be done in the makefile, as
detailed in http://www.lorene.obspm.fr/pgplot_quick.txt

Apart from this change in the Fortran part, Lorene compiles
well with gcc 4.0.

Bon code !
