I'm using 3 version of the intel compiler. These 2 plus the latest
9.0 version and I was able to compile everything with any problems.
Open MPI provide a clean interface for f90 that is different from the
f77. We generate all possible functions (overloading them) depending
on the type of arguments. It's a big file, and when I say big ...
it's big. So it take a while to build and it take a while for the F90
codes to get compiled. But, it's a clean F90 code ...

That's a solution that works but you will get some warnings. If you
want there is an option for configure which will decrease the maximum
dimension array for the F90 interface. By default is set to 4 but you
can move it down to 2. Please set --with-f90-max-array-dim=2 at
configure time, and the compilation of any F90 will be a lot faster,
while you will still have a clean F90 interface.

If you're not mixing F90 and C in the same program it will work
without problems. If you mix C and F90 it should work ...
