Dear Support Staff,

I am wondering if you have some instructions to download
octave.  I am having some difficulties in doing so.

So far I have done the following:

1) I downloaded from:
2) I downloaded from:
3) I downloaded from:

Then I untared as follows:

tar xvfz octave-2.0.16.tar.gz

This created the directory:  octave-2.0.16.  Inside this directory I
untared the other files (make and gcc).

When I run the command  "./configure"
I get the error:  "In order to build octave, you must have a compatible
Fortran compiler or f2c installed and in your path. See the file INSTALL for more

Followed I downloaded and untared g77.  But I still have the same error.

Any hints?
