I'll let Roy weigh in, but my observation has been that 90% of the current build requirements are to make the source compressor/obfuscator that in the end produces a single source file… and a lot of the compiler issues I've seen are with actually the compressor, not fparser itself.

Roy, any thoughts on this or are we crazy here at the INL?  I'm willing to prepare a patch to go back to the release version of the package or perhaps we could do something in between.  Maybe "--enable-fparser-devel" and have it default to disabled bringing in only the release files for normal builds.


Glad to hear you are not opposed to this option!
