cluster installation hangs or too many args (PR#1624)
Sun, 2 Jun 2002 07:38:13 +0200 (MET DST)

This runs correctly for me on `Solaris', using Solaris' f77.  I presume
you don't have a Fortran compiler installed on either system as you are
using the script bin/f77?  If so how did you compile cluster before?

We need a lot more information, including which compilers you have and
which configure selected.  Did you perchance set environment variables
such as FC or F77?

If you do have /usr/bin/f77 as a real Fortran compiler, tell configure so
(or edit etc/Makeconf).
