g77 certainly supports standard uses of EQUIVALENCE.  If it has a bug
in this case that isn't already recorded we'd like to know about it to
be able to fix it (fortran at gnu.ai.mit.edu or via me).  I've seen
several posts implying a g77 bug but have no evidence one exists -- I
don;t have access to this version of the code.

That's hard to understand unless you're using the posted code.  It's
wrong; please don't propagate it.  It doesn't obey the f2c calling or
i/o library conventions.  The calling conventions are described in the
document in the f2c distribution.  Use the current libf2c anyway.

This seems the obvious solution for uncalled routines.

If anyone actually needs etime for f2c I can post it.
