Maybe this could be mentioned in the man page for cpp? When cpp failed
that's where I went to look for a solution, Some mention of -traditional
being needed for .F files (or that g77 makes the call on it's own and that
there is no need for an explicit call) would have kept me from loading up 
your mail server with this RTFM type of question.

Thanks for all the help,
