Any suggestions will be appreciate.

Using gfc_copy_attr causes a great many "Duplicate DIMENSION attribute 
specified at (1)" errors. This is because there is a great deal of 
checking done instead of simply keeping track of the attributes used 
which is all that is required for determining whether there is a 
conflict in the equivalence statement.

Also, the final section of accumulate_equivalence_attributes involving 
SAVE, INTENT and ACCESS look suspect to me. I'll check and update the 
patch if necessary.
