Hmm - I like that idea!  Should we make it an option since 99% of our users don't need it?

Sure, we could easily build libexodusII_for.la or whatever if requested.  That would be the safer way to do things - make sure the Fortran bindings are built with the same flags & compilers as the mainline exodusII library.

Let me know if it pops up again and we can add said option to the exodus build.
