I also have this issue with x86_64 g77 (3.4.6).

Mopac still fails in the same way after compilation with gfortran
(4.1.2). Maybe someone with a more recent version can try it? This is
from mopac.out.dif:

However, just for kicks I tried compiling with ifort (10.1). When I
ran the sustiva test a lot of extra stuff ended up in the mopac.out
file, but the heat of formation was much closer to that in
mopac.out.save:
263,268c2643,2648
<           FINAL HEAT OF FORMATION =       -119.32368 KCAL
<           TOTAL ENERGY            =      -4590.69979 EV
<           ELECTRONIC ENERGY       =     -26671.17971 EV
<           CORCORE REPULSION     =      22080.47991 EV
<           GRADIENT NORM           =         19.39246
<           IONIZATION POTENTIAL    =          9.43485

I'm not sure what's going on here but maybe someone more familiar with
the code will find it useful. I'm attaching the mopac.out file from
the ifort compilation. Note: the ifort compilation causes the
fluorescein, tp, ash, and guanine tests to fail as well.
