If we can't get your problem resolved quickly, I will have to wait
until a week from tomorrow to devote to it.

The gzipped file that Sandy put in the incoming directory of FTP
had three files in it:

/home/ftp/incoming% gunzip f2c.sol.sparc.tar.gz
/home/ftp/incoming% tar tvf f2c.sol.sparc.tar
-rwxr-xr-x 8446 2000  323584 Oct 25 17:15:26 2000 f2c
-rw-r--r-- 8446 2000    4688 Oct 25 17:20:22 2000 f2c.h
-rw-r--r-- 8446 2000  337552 Oct 25 17:25:52 2000 libf2c.a

So, you can see that f2c was included in his file.

I doubt that this is the case, but...

One must edit ~mcidas/mcidas7.6/src/makefile and set VENDOR to be -gcc
to use gcc.  My documentation was in error in the Notes and Warnings
online page.  It said to set VENDOR to blank, but this was wrong (it
is now corrected)!

I suspect that the non-Ansi copy of cc that is shipped with Solaris SPARC
was used when the Tcl/Tk configure was run.

Yup, I logged in and did the following:

which cc

This told me that the configure for Tcl/Tk (and netCDF) was using /usr/ucb/cc
since the CC environment variable was not defined.  I include how to set
this below.

Here is what I did:

<login as 'mcidas'>
cd mcidas7.6/src
make clobber
cd ~mcidas
<edit .cshrc>

Add the following section to the bottom of .cshrc:

setenv CC /usr/local/bin/gcc
setenv CFLAGS -O
setenv FC /home/mcidas/mcidas7.7/src/mcfc
setenv FFLAGS -O
setenv CXX

source .cshrc

Verify that you can access gcc and f2c:

which gcc
which f2c

verify that CC is defined to be /usr/local/bin/gcc:

echo $CC

cd ~mcidas/mcidas7.6/src

<edit makefile and set VENDOR to be -gcc>

make all

>The last line is same as I received when doing a make over a year ago,

The problem was that the Tcl/Tk and netCDF configure invocations using

>When I look at the path line after typing

It was missing the CC, CFLAGS, FC, FFLAGS, and CXX definitions I list

>So, I request advice from the best.

As I write this, the build is proceeding nicely.  I won't hit send until
applications start being linked.

It seemed to work.  The last thing I did before logging off was:

make install.all

I heard hobbes start to chatter, so suspected you were
working.  Looked at my .cshrc, and found several new
setenv lines which I obviously forgot to do.
