[Wrf-users] WRF3.3 - syntax error in module_fr_sfire_core?

Hi there, WRF Help and WRF Users. . .

I've found what on _my_ system is being interpreted as a syntax error,
but I don't know if it actually is a syntax error, a compiler directive
that our system can't interpret, a configuration error, a compiler bug,
or what. . .

When attempting to build WRF 3.3, I get the following error:
--------------------- snip
  /apps/user_apps/OpenMPI-1.2.4_PGI7.0-2/bin/mpif90 -o
module_fr_sfire_core.o -c -fastsse -Mvect=noaltcode
-Mprefetch=distance:8 -Mfprelaxed -Mipa=fast,inline,safe -w -Mfree
-byteswapio -I../dyn_em -I../dyn_nmm -module
-I/apps/user_apps/netcdf-4.1.1_PGI7.0-2/install_dir/include -r4 -i4
module_fr_sfire_core.f90 ; \
PGF90-S-0034-Syntax error at or near end of line
(module_fr_sfire_core.f90: 233)
  0 inform,   0 warnings,   1 severes, 0 fatal for nearest
make[3]: [module_fr_sfire_core.o] Error 2 (ignored)
--------------------- snip

When I examine module_fr_sfire_core.f90, I find that line 233 contains
the following:


That looks to me something like a compiler directive (?), but given that
it starts with the exclamation point, I would think it would be ignored
if the compiler didn't understand it.  Checking with
module_fr_sfire_core.F, it looks like that line is directly inherited
from there.

When I remove that line (or replace it with a standard comment line),
then that file compiles fine using the same compilation command.  I
haven't yet tried to see if this allows me to completely build the
executable properly.

As you can see from the command above, I'm using PGI 7.0-2.  We've got
later versions installed on our system, but I'm currently having some
licensing issues that I've got to resolve.

It's a bit interesting, because I've found that similar lines didn't
cause problems elsewhere in the code base.  For example, the file
module_big_step_utilities_em.f90 contains several instances of the
following, and generated no errors:

!DEC$ loop count(3)

Any thoughts?
