This may have been obvious to some but the following may
help some other fortran script kiddies:

For the problem of errors such as:

xdrvr.c:33 X11/Xlib.h: No such file or directory
etc, etc, etc

When compiling up with commands such as:

g77 -o platon platon.f xdrvr.c -lX11


The magic options were:

-I /usr/X11R6/include -L /usr/X11R6/lib


g77 -o platon platon.f xdrvr.c -I /usr/X11R6/include -L /usr/X11R6/lib -lX11
