Hi Victor,

"all-you-can-eat pizza" is really a persuasive argument.

Molscript and Raster3D are running on my Linux box;
I have used the f2c/gcc combination and observed similar problems
with system.f (versions for different OSs tried ...).
Finally I commented out all unused routines in system.f and modified
the .c file (exit_ replaced by exit), if I recall the details correctly.

Hope this helps,
