I'm unfortunately unable to replicate your problems on my PowerMac
with Absoft 9.2. I don't think it's a problem, but note that Absoft
doesn't support the 8.0 compilers on OS X 10.4.5, only the 9.x
series. I see that somewhere along the way during configure, some
bogus output ended up in the environment for configure, which is what
is causing the problems you are seeing. I can't figure out where
it's coming from, but the quick and easy solution (and indeed, the
right solution) is to not specify compiler flags in the compiler
variable, but in the compiler flags variables. Something like:

   FFLAGS="-f -N15"

That should do the trick, I think. If not, please send the
config.status file emitted from configure. It might include enough
information to track the problem down.
