Running "make" when configure fails is moot.  Apparently, your system is
lacking a system library, libg2c, which is supposed to be present when gcc
is installed.  I see from your config.log that you're using gcc 4.1.2 on a
x86_64 RedHat system, which (apart from 64bit) is identical to mine, so I
suspect your compiler installation is incomplete.  On my system that
library is provided by the package "compat-libf2c"; can you install it?

Another option would be to use gfortran instead of g77; for this purpose,
you need to define F77=gfortran before running configure.

Cheers, p.
