Problem compiling LAPACK timing suite with openf90

I am having a minor issue with openf90 and may have uncovered a bug. I am trying to compile and run the LAPACK timing suite from netlib.org. My goal is to time ACML routines vs. those of lapack+gotoblas. The problem is when the example program is created and run, there is a SEGMENTATION FAULT. My steps to reproduce are below. I am using CentOS 5.3 on a Rocks Cluster with gcc version 4.1.2 20071124 (from gcc -v) on dual AMD Barcelona hardware.

Download both the LAPACK source as well as the timing package and unpack them into a clean directory.

wget http://www.netlib.org/lapack/lapack.tgz
wget http://www.netlib.org/lapack/timing/timing.tgz

tar xfz lapack.tgz;cd lapack-3.2.1;tar xfz ../timing.tgz

Edit the make.inc file to include openf90 as well as acml. Here is what I use to recreate the error.

SHELL = /bin/sh
FORTRAN  = openf90
OPTS     = -g -O0
NOOPT    = -g -O0
LOADER   = openf90
LOADOPTS = -Wl,-R/opt/acml4.3.0/open64_64/lib
# Timer for the SECOND and DSECND routines
# SECOND and DSECND will use a call to the Fortran standard INTERNAL FUNCTION CPU_TIME
ARCH     = ar
RANLIB   = ranlib
BLASLIB      = -L/opt/acml4.3.0/open64_64/lib -lacml
#  Names of generated libraries.
LAPACKLIB    = lapack$(PLAT).a
TMGLIB       = tmglib$(PLAT).a
EIGSRCLIB    = eigsrc$(PLAT).a
LINSRCLIB    = linsrc$(PLAT).a

I don't compile the lapack library since I am using ACML, but I do touch it so Make does not complain.

Touch the LAPACKLIB and make the TMGLIB.

touch lapack_LINUX.a
make tmglib

Now enter the TIMING directory and build executables. The problem I encounter is with the double precision eigenvalue (EIG) timing tests. The single precision runs correctly, but double, complex, and double complex all Seg fault.

cd TIMING/EIG/EIGSRC;make;cd ..;make

This will generate the proper eigenvalue executables.

The Seg fault occurs regardless of input file. I have run GDB and included the output below.

This is not a mission critical error, but I did have a similar problem with openf90 and a utility program included in the software that we use for research. That software is closed source so I cannot share it with the public. The backtrace of this utility that segfaults shows that it occurred at line 1 again (PROGRAM programname) line.

This is not urgent like I said, but maybe this will be useful to some.
