The file "/usr/local/udunits-1.11.7/etc/udunits.dat is the units-database for 
the original UDUNITS (alias UDUNITS-1) package. There's no way that pathname 
should be handed to the g77(1) compiler.

Also, according to <http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-3.4.6/g77/> g77(1) 
doesn't have a "-p" option.

I think your g77(1) command is invalid.
