The error means the library f2c.a was not found. The flag -L/f2c looks
strange - usually there's no f2c directory in /. Check where exactly
the directory is and modify the -L flag appropriately. For example, if
it's /usr/local/f2c, modify it to -L/usr/local/f2c . Note that the -L
flag specifies directories in which to search for the libraries.
