Dear ??,

as long as I can see from the posts on this mailing list the problem  
is rarely the  arch file.
The main problem is that INTEL compilers (as many others out there  
like PGI) are intrinsically bugged.
The more they release the more buggy they become.

So.. it's nice to have scripts that set environmental variable for  
you .. but it would be much nicer (from my
point of view) to have compilers that are able to do their job.
The situation becomes even more dramatic if you think that F90  
standard is roughly 20 years old..
