Out of curiosity, how then was the OP ever able to make *any* version run?
This is again related to the failure of execution of a gfortran built
binary ("cannot execute binary", see thread
In short, the main problem is that I can't build a successful binary
from the FLEXPART fortran code
I helped Edvardsen to track this down off-list. It turns out that FLEXPART
is one of those huge number-crunching Fortran programs that's just jam-packed
with ginormous multi-dimensional arrays. The final linked executable had 3.38
GB of .bss space! So, it's not too surprising that it didn't load on 32-bit
Windows; and it's not, as I was worrying, any explicit bug in the compiler or
binutils (although it may be arguable that ld could be helpful if it issued
some kind of warning in these circumstances).
