The mopac code does not seem to work with any compilers except g77 and
gfortran. It is slated for removal, so I don't think there is any motivation
for anyone to try to port to other compilers (which I think would be
difficult). Furthermore, for the purposes mopac is mostly used for here (to
help get am1-bcc charges) there is no need for more optimization.
