Sounds like you have VAX Fortran and Thure has DEC Fortran.

I have been fixing up the same kinds of conflicts for the EGCG code.
The fix checks for the DECC compiler using code like the following:

$ If ( f$search("sys$system:DECC$COMPILER.EXE").eqs."" )
$   then
$! must have VAX C (or nothing)
$   else
$! DEC C compiler found
$ endif

For EGCG I also have to worry about some of the compiler options between
DEC C and VAX C.
