I have it up and running on a FreeBSD UNIX box by using the latest
version of g77.  After talk with Kraulis, there are some routines
that you can comment out which will compile molscript on a generic
unix machine.  You can email me on what lines I modified on my system.f
to get it working.  But for those of you who run FreeBSD, I'll support
that platform (for a while...) if you need to get molscript compiled
there.  I may have a "generic" system.f since it also seemed to work
on HP-UX 9.01 with g77.
