MAGMA without FORTRAN

I am attempting to install MAGMA 1.0.0-rc5 on a computer which has g++ installed but not gfortran and the person who controls the setup is away. As we don't need to use the FORTRAN version is there an easy way to configure it not to build the FORTRAN tools?

Thanks

John

I don't think this is possible since part of MAGMA itself seems to be derived from the Lapack/Blas itself which is written in Fortran.
Therefore, I think a Fortran Compiler is required in any case.

I had a go by taking things out of the makefile bit by bit. There is a library in testing/lin where the source files are all in fortran. It is linked by the test examples. I suppose I could run those files through e.g. f2c and make them c.

The main thing I need is for gfortran to be installed, then the problem would go away.

Thanks
