Hi Robert,

The f2c libraries included in the lapack are
very old. NON_UNIX_STDIO is no longer be
necessary on Linux if you are using an updated
library (see f2c/changes in the netlib) .
Try to download a new F2C bundle and use
the new library. I don't know if the changes
in the f2c package may be relevant for clapack,
but a large suite of test code is present.

Six o seven month ago I have installed lapack
in my Linux box (Slackware), using old
f2c libraries. I remember a
succesful compilation (gcc 2.7.2 libc5).

Probably you are using gcc 2.8.1 (ecgg ?) and
libc6 (glibc2) Linux world is coming incompatible.

Feel fre to ask, using my e-mail address, any
other question because now I am trying to
install clapack (bus using new updated f2c)

Please note that I am using Slackware with
gcc libc5 kernel 2.0.30
