On 23-Dec-98 email@example.com spoke unto us all:
# is there a clean way to handle this in a package? I could hack a gnu
# 'configure' script to search for f77 and then f2c-f77 and then fail if
# neither is there, but it would be nice if the package would just tell the
# user 'hey, you need one of these things'.
# Any suggestions?
I had discussed doing this before, but I don't think anything ever happened of
it. One of my ideas would be something like:
You could add other goop in there that a configure script, or tuned makefile
would pick up on.
