[BioC] Problem installing hexbin?

it seems fine on our Suse Box with
rgentlem at gladstone:~> gfortran --version
GNU Fortran 95 (GCC 4.0.2 20050901 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux))
Copyright (C) 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  gfortran -fPIC -c hbin.f -o hbin.o

does what I think it is supposed to do.
So I suspect that something else is wrong.

I do see tabs not spaces in the file (which could cause some problems I 

To find the source down load the package, untar it and look in
you could try changing all tabs to the right number of spaces and see if 
that fixes things.

note the file also declares
         implicit none
and then does define a type for shape.

  best wishes
