I suspect that it's getting confused because you are using the GNU C
compiler (gcc) with the Sun Fortran compiler (f77), and the configure
script may not be able to figure out how to link gcc-compiled C code with
f77-compiled Fortran code. Try forcing it to use the Sun C compiler (cc),
by setting the CC environment variable to "cc" (then 'make distclean' and
re-configure and re-make).
(In general, if you want to know why a particular configure test fails,
you can look at the config.log file.)
PS. It's my fault that it uses f77 with gcc. I set up the configure
script to prefer the vendor Fortran compiler, since it was probably used
to compile BLAS/LAPACK/etcetera, but I probably should have made it prefer
the vendor cc as well.
PPS. I will be in Australia for the next week, so I probably won't be
responding to email.
