cannot find -lgfortran44 (Leap 42.1)

I’m a total newbie about recompiling programs.

during a “make” I’ve found this problem:

/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.8/…/…/…/…/x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lgfortran44

I was unable to find where lgfortran44 is, so I’ve tried different (random) gfortrans… with no success.

I have no idea how to solve this issue.
I’ve thought to modify the “Makefile” in the following row, but I’m really walking the dark.
LIBS = $(SUBLIBS) -L/usr/lib64 … **-lgfortran **

Can someone help me? Thanks

You need to modify the, then autoreconf, re run configure and then make… 44 would relate to gcc 4.4 fortran, which is not about either…

Your trying this on 42.1 (EOL)?
