Hi Matt,
	Sitting here at Elettra during  a run, I downloaded the rc1 of  
ifeffit10 on my MacBook Pro (intel cpu) and found that the gfortran  
compiler had trouble with one of the sources: rand.f and attempted a  
build using gfortran 4.2.1 and found that the make crashed due to an  
overflow in a constant in rand.f.  The same makefile worked fine with  
the intel compiler.  If I get time later this week, I will try and  
build the latest version of ifeffit and horae using the intel  
compiler on the MacBook Pro I have here.

gfortran -g -O2 -fPIC -c misc_rand.f

        parameter(umask = -2147483648) ! most significant w-r bits
Error: Integer too big for its kind at (1)
make[3]: *** [misc_rand.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2
