g77 does compile *most* f77 extensions and weirdnesses, you may not be
picking the right flags. But PGI is a good choice, just because it's
probably quite a bit faster. And with a cluster, faster means fewer
nodes which saves money.

Why not compile on the master? Surely compilation time is much less
than run time?
