No, probably not. I remember a lot of reports of people being unable
to compile Octave on older versions of Red Hat precisely due to these.

Hmm... stubborn as I am, I am still giving it a try... just to make sure that it really isn't possible ;-) So I'm using

address@hidden:~$ gcc --version | head -1
gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-51)

address@hidden:~$ g++ --version | head -1
g++ (GCC) 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-51)

address@hidden:~$ gfortran --version | head -1
GNU Fortran (GCC) 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-51)

If I then configure with

address@hidden:~/octave-3.4.3$ ./configure --prefix=/users/vandewoe/software/octave/octave-3.4.3

I get

configure: error: A BLAS library was detected but found incompatible with your Fortran 77 compiler settings.

I know I can solve this with

  export FFLAGS="-ff2c"

but I'm not sure if this is the 'clean' solution. If somebody confirms that setting FFLAGS to -ff2c is the best thing I can do here, then I'll continue...
