New tarball compiles smoothly ... on my SuSE Linux personal computer! None
of the difficulties of the Mac OS show up, and fortran examples run fine
(the xwin driver stops normally when I press return in the window,
contrary to the behavior of the last release on the Mac).

Mac OS X is essentially a completely new platform for us, but with all that
useful feedback from you and Koen, we hope to get the PLplot experience as
smooth on Mac OS X as it currently is on Linux. Thanks for your patience
with our experiments about what works and what doesn't. I think the next
cvs snapshot will be much smoother for you now we have settled what to do
(comment it out) with the AC_F77_LIBRARY_LDFLAGS parameter that was giving
you all those problems.
I have one further question for you that has been touched on before. Now
that you have access to a smoothly working modern PLplot does it satisfy
your fortran needs? Note especially the new fortran plshades functionality.
Current cvs (post-snapshot) shows in several of the fortran examples
(especially example 16) how to work with a large static fortran 2D array
with a defined area that is smaller.
