I was just looking at the documentation for g77 and noticed the
following, and also noticed that it is not used when fortran for a
package is compiled with the default (i.e. no Makefile in src
directory.) Should it be considered?
(Intel x86 architecture only.)
Noticeably improves performance of `g77' programs making heavy use
of `REAL(KIND=2)' (`DOUBLE PRECISION') data on some systems. In
particular, systems using Pentium, Pentium Pro, 586, and 686
implementations of the i386 architecture execute programs faster
when `REAL(KIND=2)' (`DOUBLE PRECISION') data are aligned on
64-bit boundaries in memory.
This option can, at least, make benchmark results more consistent
across various system configurations, versions of the program, and
*Note:* The warning in the `gcc' documentation about this option
does not apply, generally speaking, to Fortran code compiled by
