As a footnote to Brian's comment, I would just say that those hardy
few of us who still write ratfor can and do include it in a subdirectory
under src since it tends to be vastly more readable than its automatically
produced fortran translation. But we have also learned from hard
experience that one can't always rely on the ratfor preprocessing
that is provided by systems even when it exists.
