We have been doing some performance tests on the LAPack, have seen factor 2 difference between both the PGI and G77 (on Linux) compilers and the Digital compiler (on WINNT).  Is there a compiler version of the Digital library for Linux?  Is there a compiler that delivers the same performance as the Digital?  Is there a different version of the LAPack library that provides better performance?

mind-paralyzing void, the inky black nothingness of existence, the 
hellish yawning maw of the abyss -- it's pretty damn dark, so give it a 
few minutes for your eyes to adjust."
