Well, no: seeing the error message I tried it on a 256MB RAM and 512MB
swap system (Linux 2.2), and it still does not compile. In fact, I
have not found any system on which it compiles, which tells me that
G77 just uses too much resources for a task which, when done
sequential when reading the file, should be doable with tiny memory

Do you have other ideas? A hidden flag to tell G77 not to do anything
fancy? I tried various combinations of options but without success.

Thanks and best regards
