If you cannot distribute your mods, then you have no problem with 
respect to the GPL.  When US Gov releases the research/code, it 
will be public domain, again, no problem.

I haven't followed this thread closely, but given your last statement,
I fail to see the problem.  

One other thing to consider: if octave won't do the job (for whatever
reason), and the funding agency won't spring for a matlab license, 
how bad do they really want it done?  Bad enough enough to pay the 
factor of 2-5 to do it in fortran?
