[Lapack] issue with DGGSVD in LAPACK

Hello, I ran into a problem building the LAPACK (c version) on a high 
performance computing platform using an icc compiler.  The libraries 
seemed to build okay, but when I ran the testing executables I ran 
into some errors in the SVD routine.  I have attached the output file 
with the errors.  Do you know what may have caused these errors?

I have probably a related problem when I try to run some of my code 
using the DGESVD routine in that I get an error
** On entry to DGESVD, parameter number  4 had an illegal value

  INFO = -4
  LWORK = -1

Can you help me with any of these issues?

Hi Eric,

I would be happy to try to help out here. Can you let me
the exact formulation of the constrained LS
problem you want to solver? I can take a look and
see whether we're on the right-track to use the DGGSVD
from LAPACK.

Apologize the delay for response. We just finished the spring
quarter term.

I am using the routine DGGSVD (CLAPACK) to solve constrained least 
squares problems.  To do this I need to form a matrix X from Q and 
R as discussed in GSVD literature.  R appears to be nearly 
diagonal. The result of using the GSVD to solve a system of 
equations is that the first half of the solution is nearly zero, 
but the second half gives the correct answer.  Can you put me in 
contact with someone familiar with this routine to work out this 
issue?  I can supply the source code if required.
