Right.  'convdlm' converts 'DLM' (dynamic link module) source code (files
with the '.dlm' suffix into Fortran source that can be compiled into
object modules.

The failure definitely has to do with f2c.

If the existing Linux boxes were running a pre-6.x version of RedHat
Linux, then the version of f2c you are trying to use will not work.

I make a RedHat 6.x Linux compatible version of f2c, f2c.h, and
libf2c.a available through the passworded McIDAS FTP site.  The files
can be found in the unix/760/fortran/RedHat6.x directory.  Please make
sure to FTP them in binary mode!

>Thank you
