What happens when you follow the suggestions above? Sander operates
completely in the user space, and no such program should be able to freeze the
machine, even if it has a bug.

Look at the definition of _Xconst in /usr/lib/X11/Xfuncproto.h. _Xconst should
get expanded to "const", but it sounds like it is not. You may need to add
-D__STDC__ to your $(CC) variable in config.h. (I am just guessing here,
based on files in SunOS 5.8, which works fine.)

What is the output of "uname -a"? From "cc -V"?

In mdread.f try changing the line:

   integer, intent(out) :: trescnt


   integer :: trescnt

Probably a long shot, but I don't see why trescnt should be an illegal
namelist object.

...good luck...dac
