Reluctantly, yes.

The first thing that I saw was that you had not installed f2c, f2c.h, or
libf2c.  I did see a /usr/local/include/f2c.h and a dangling link
for libf2c.a:  /usr/local/lib/libf2c.a -> /usr/lib/libf2c.a.  The
file /usr/lib/libf2c.a does not exist.

Since these must be installed as 'root', and since the McIDAS remote 
ADDE server needs tob be installed as 'root', you have two options:

o give me root access
o do the root installation stuff yourself

I FTPed mcidasx760.tar.Z, mcinstall, and mcinet7.6.sh today and then found
that f2c was missing.  Since f2c is needed for the build (g77 does not
work), I am at an impasse.
