Not to run, only to compile.

If you have no experience building packages I am afraid that building from
the standard grads-2.0.a1 sources will be a bit on the challenging side as
these sources do not build straight out of the box with the OpenGrADS
supplibs. I have contributed patches for both 2.0.a0 and 2.0.a1 that makes
GrADS v2 build "out of the box" with the supplibs-2.0.1, but to the best of
my knowledge these patches have not yet made to the official COLA

As for your platform, I have FreeBSD binaries that I would be more than glad
to share with you; please contact me directly if you are interested. As a
matter of policy, I am not posting GrADS binaries on that do not
directly support OpenGrADS development. These binaries are also available
for COLA to post on their FTP site if they so wish.
