[CP2K:3155] building cp2k on CentOS 5.5

Dear Dominik,

CentOS 5.5 comes with a gcc/gfortran of the 4.1 series. CP2K is quite 
demanding to the compiler, and gfortran has progressed in the recent 
years to better comply with standards. In other words: if you're stoned 
to gfortran 4.1, you'll most likely never be able to build it.
My recommendation is to build a new build environment from scratch with 
a newer gcc/gfortran, e.g. the 4.3 or 4.4 series. This worked fine for 
me on RHEL 5.5.
