Re: Cannot find -lf2c compilation error

The f2c library is[*] part of the GNU Fortran runtime support. Are some of your source files written in Fortran? If not, then you don't need the f2c lib; just edit it out of the linking step.

If you do have some Fortran code lurking in there, then you will need the f2c library. It should be included with GNU Fortran, so there may be a problem with the linker options that's preventing ld from finding the library.

[*] Or was--it's been ten years since I used it.
