What cpu do you have (i.e. what is the result of "uname -a"?)

It's weird that no one else has reported this, but some other ncsu-related
things seem to be broken with earlier versions of gfortran. I've not had
problems with gfortran 4.4.0, but I don't have exactly your configuration

If it's possible, upgrading gfortran is certainly one thing to try. Another
workaround might be to use g95 (but gfortran is "supposed" to work).

...good luck...dac
