Fedora turns out not to provide statically compiled libraries for things like -X11, so a fully static build was impossible. The pre-existence of dependency libraries and headers that were other versions or had been built with other compilers and compiler options was the biggest issue. By creating a special compilation environment and carefully controlling the -L -l and -I to be the right version compiled with the icc and ifort compilers, I was able to get it to work. A last hiccup was one Makefile that had a hardcoded g\+\+ compiler in it that had to be changed to icc.

Yes, you can move the installed software wherever you like. There are no path dependencies. You just need to update your NCARG_ROOT, and make sure $NCARG_ROOT/bin is on your search path.

There's not enough information to go on here. I assume you are running WRAPIT? If so, what arguments are you using? If you know how this module was compiled, then you want to have WRAPIT use the same compiler and flags, if possible.


 will show you the various options you can try for changing the compiler. "WRAPIT -in" will invoke the Intel compilers.
