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).
Out of curiosity, how then was the OP ever able to make *any* version run?
