Description Priit Laes (IRC: plaes) 2004-05-15 09:43:10 UTC
I get this error when trying to emerge octave:
checking for f2c... no
configure: WARNING: in order to build octave, you must have a compatible
configure: WARNING: Fortran compiler or f2c installed and in your path.
configure: error: See the file INSTALL for more information.
!!! ERROR: app-sci/octave-2.1.57-r1 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 65, Exitcode 1
!!! configure failed

My idea is:
when there's no f77 USE flag, then it octave should depend on dev-lang/f2c

Reproducible: Always
