I remember the pain one of the people I know in Melbourne went through trying 
to get Gaussian to build on their cluster - turned out (they said) it 
required a specific version of a particular vendors compiler to get it to 

My thought at the time was that they must have tried *really* hard to get it 
to the point where the code was broken enough to be that dependant on 
compiler behaviour.. :-(
