I'm a bit confused about this discussion, but since I don't have f2c on
the computer I've been using the past week, I assume most of the
necessary parts on this library have been distributed with R (but I
can't find them). I have been compiling the C version of my code,
generated with f2c on another machine, and almost everything seems to
be working. I am having trouble with pow_dd, pow_ii and pow_ri.

If there are truely only a few important routines missing then it would
be a lot easier for people distributing libraries to have those pieces
added to the R distribution.
