I've been playing around with the "ar" from MinGW3.0 and the Absoft
ProFortran compiler and have noticed that the Absoft compiler is unable
to link against libraries created by "ar". In bringing up this issue
with Absoft, they had this to say:
>The problem here is that Microsoft archive libraries have two headers,
>the library produced by the MinGW ar command only contains one.
>Apparently, the Microsoft linker will accept libraries with either one
>or two headers, but the Absoft linker will only accept a library with

Is there some option for "ar" that I need to use to create this second
