x86 open64


The x86 open64 compilers are installed from source package on Cent OS 5.

Found that names of some library (.so) files, doesn't start with "lib" as simple.


# ls /opt/open64-4.2.2/lib/gcc-lib/x86_64-open64-linux/4.2.2/       
... etc

why so? Are not these libraries?
In case if they are, how to link them?

One more issue: The fortran compiler is not working

# openf90 sample.f -o sample
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lfortran
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Does open64 require any Fortan base libraries before install?

Thanks in advance
