after a few patches, I have been able to compile GDE2.2 under
Linux-1.2.x - with the MFOLD routines excluded (they didn't compile
with f2c, and I couldn't get them going on a RS/6000 with a native
fortran compiler, either, but this may be fully due to the sad fact
that I don't know anything about FORTRAN...).
I'll mail the patches ASAP (I don't have them on the box I'm using
right now...) via e-mail. If you'd like to have the binaries,
please let me know about it (I'd set up a temporary ftp account...).
Best regards
