Sorry, but the ifeffit code and build environment are no longer maintained
or supported. There have been no changes in the past two years, and only a
handful of patches in the past five years.  PGPLOT is even older, with
essentially no changes in the past fifteen years.  PGPLOT was never a great
solution, and it was never required to build or use ifeffit.

You're welcome to try to get these to build and run, but I cannot give any
support or diagnose any trouble with them.

There is a replacement that is supported and maintained and much easier to
use and build.  I suggest you use that.
