Hi Folks,

I confirm that fftw2 could not be properly linked at least in Mac OS X
10.4.x. This is because the configure script of fftw2 does not handle
later versions of gfortran built on 10.4.x and subsequently bails on
testing with disabled fortran objects. A detail analysis shows that in
my 10.4.x box, gfortran lists -lcrt1.o as one of the system library
but the configure script doesn't like it.

So a temporary solution would be to apply my patch (attached) in
$AMBERHOME, and re-do the configure.
   $ cd $AMBERHOME; patch -p0 -N < fftw_prob.patch
   $ cd AmberTools/src; ./configure -macAccelerate gnu

I still think that this patch should only be a temporary fix because
only Jorgen and I reported this problem so far. (And that's really
fftw2's bug.)

Jorgen, I am sorry for the delay, if you are still interested, could
you try my patch and see if that fixes your problem?
