I am trying to compile a Fortran program. In the past it has worked 
successfully, that is with Mandrake 10.1 installed. I have upgraded to 
2006 and compilation gives this error:

ld: crtbegin.o: No such file: No such file or directory


g77 --version
GNU Fortran (GCC) 3.4.1 (Mandrakelinux 10.1 3.4.1-4mdk)

g77 -ffixed-line-length-0 -ff90 -finit-local-zero -ffast-math 
-fno-automatic -Wsurprising -W -fno-f2c -ffortran
-bounds-check -O -o  community.cable community.cable.f

Is crtbegin.o part of a normal distribution that has been omitted ??
Is there a problem with g77 ?

Any suggestions.
