Dear R-devel,

A while ago Prof. Ripley had mentioned that g77 on AMD64 isn't the greatest,
and the Salford Fortran is likely to be better.  My question is, has anyone
tried compiling R with Salford compilers (or other commercial compilers)?
If so, do they offer performance advantages over GCC?

TIA for any info.
