The CPPFLAGS macro must be set before the configure script is executed.

Try the following:

    1.  Go to the top-level source-directory.

    2.  Execute the command "make distclean".

    3.  Set you environment variable as before.

    4.  Ensure that the CPPFLAGS environment variable contains the
        string "-Df2cFortran".

    5.  Execute the configure script.

    6.  Execute the command "make"

    7.  Execute the command "make install".

The problem is that I was using the INSTALL document on the
web which is out of date:


It listed the flags for Linux as:

    linux_2.0-i586 (Sunshine):
        PERL=/usr/bin/perl              # version 5.003 with EMBED

The distribution INSTALL file (version 1.12.3 from the CD from
the workshop) shows:

    linux_2.4-i686 (Daffy):
        CPPFLAGS='-DNDEBUG -Df2cFortran'
        CFLAGS='-O -fno-builtin'

The Web docs should be updated to be in sync with the release.

Also, as I mentioned, the INSTALL file does not (that I could
find) include any mention that you may need superuser priveliges
to install the PERL module.
