    o more information:
      more specifically Vasile is reporting that the comments:

*          [...] H contains the upper quasi-triangular
*          matrix S from the generalized Schur factorization;
*          2-by-2 diagonal blocks (corresponding to complex conjugate
*          pairs of eigenvalues) are returned in standard form, with
*          H(i,i) = H(i+1,i+1) and H(i+1,i)*H(i,i+1) < 0.

     are not correct

(*) bug :: failure of convergence of DHGEQZ for some specific matrix pencils

Deprecated routines

(*) dead code :: xLAHRD is now replaced by xLAHR2, xLAHRD is a dead code since LAPACK 3.1

    o xLAHRD will be removed at some point in the future from the distribution
