The Sun unbundled Fortran compiler has a hyper-optimized special math
library. It might be worth trying something like this when linking:
g77 prog.o -lg77 -L/opt/SUNWspro/lib -lsunmath -lm
see if that helps. (You might also need to add -R/opt/SUNWspro/lib.)
Also, what's your platform? Tuning for the right processor can be a
big win on Sparcs.
