Gfortran versus g77

ROOT version 5.16 automatically defaults to gfortran if available with a fallback to g77 if not. This can cause problems when linking with CERNlib ( h2root ). Would it be possible to implement an option in configure to allow the user to override the default behaviour here ? ( --with-g77 ? )

Hi Peter,

in case h2root is compiled with gfortran and cernlib with g77 we need only to make sure to link with the g77 runtime libg2c, which we do. Does that not work for you?

Cheers, Fons.
