Right now, Ifeffit doesn't build correctly with gfortran.  I do have a
box with gfortran and not g77 on it, and will work on this for Ifeffit
1.2.10.  The build is broken, but I think it's fixable.   I'll work on
this and send a progress report within a few days.

But: you say that PGPLOT runs perfectly.  I believe you did not
install it with the PGPLOT_install script, as the one distributed with
Ifeffit 1.2.9 does not work with gfortran either (and libpgplot.so
does not get written).    For Ifeffit 1.2.10, using PGPLOT_install to
install PGPLOT will be a requirement.

So your choices are to build both PGPLOT and Ifeffit with g77 now, or
wait until I can get a build script that can use gfortran.

Sorry for the trouble,
