RE: amber-developers: PGF90 with no -tp option.

Hi Dave,

The current configure as is in CVS works a treat for PGF90 on x86 and
with one exception:

Having -L/usr/X11R6/lib64 causes compilation warnings about incompatible
libraries to be printed. On my system it just prints a warning and skips
these libraries and uses the 32 bit ones in /usr/X11R6/lib instead but it
may not do this on ALL machines, I'm not sure how easy this would be to
remove for just PGF90 though.

The XLIBS line should be changed from:

XLIBS= -L /usr/X11R6/lib64 -L /usr/X11R6/lib


XLIBS= -L/usr/X11R6/lib

Anyway, it seems to work well... The complete TEST_FAILURES.diff is
attached. The only strange one is the amoeba failure which shows 2 missing
lines in the RMS Fluctuations section. Although I think it might be the
file that needs updating. I haven't had a chance to check with other

Also, one other note, prehaps when pgf90 is specified we should print a
brief informational message in the config.h file warning about problems
64 bit compilation etc and if you choose to change any of the settings
you do so at your own risk and should test thoroughly. This way me stop
cowboys who don't appreciate what they are doing from inadvertantly

All the best
