It looks like the compiler doesn't recognize that these files are free format,
and it trying to interpret them as the old fixed format files.

You don't say whether or not your were able to compile the serial code or not,
but I'm going to assume that worked for you, since everyone should be
compiling serial before parallel (this may even have been required for

Given that, I'm guessing(!?!) that there is some problem with your MPI
installation. What compiler are you using? What arguments did you pass
to the configure command? What you you see when you type "which mpif90"
and "mpif90 --show"?

It is important that the mpif90 command be using the same compiler as you
told the configure program.

At a minimum, report what the make program was doing *before* the error
messages, i.e. exactly what command it was executing.
