compiling PRISM on SGI's ??

Has anyone tried to compile the PRISM programs for skeletonizing electron
density on an SGI workstation. We are having problems here - the programs
seem to build o.k. - the compiler doesn't complain - however they don't
execute properly (e.g. freer core dumps after apparently reading an mtz file).
The problem in this case seems to occur at the instruction

   DRND = RANDOM(0.0D0)
 where RANDOM is a double precision function.
it fixes if the code is changed to

  DSEED = 0.0D0

Is there some option needed in the supplied Makefile ?
Other programs (eg SKELETON) also give a SEGMENTATION ERROR (core dump)
How can I fix everything at once ?
