Thanks for reporting this.  It'll be in the next release.

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web which is out of date: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.
