Maybe this web site will help:


"nm" is helpful when trying to resolve symbols not found
in the table.  Notice the testing of mathematical functions in 
the routine called primes.f; I had problems finding atan2 and datan2.

Good luck... it seems like a bit of a crap shoot when it comes
to resolving all the symbols.
