I think the KINDs are compiler dependent. For Sun Studio Fortran,
REAL*16 and REAL(16) are the same thing. For Intel, maybe it's
different. I don't know. Try running this program:
double precision xDP
write(6,*) kind(xDP), kind(x16), kind(xSTAR16), kind(1.0_16)
and checking if the output matches your expectations.
