Alex,

I tried following these complete instruction a while ago, in some previous
version of Owl, but it might have been solaris.
I didn't know I only needed to upgrade gcc itself.
I think I got errors I didn't know how to correct doing something with
"Build mpc".

I'm glad you mentioned that I only need upgrade gcc. I give that a shot
soon.

FYI, if you build on Owl 3, the only thing you need to upgrade is gcc
itself.  The rest is already recent enough to build John with OpenMP.

For gcc, you may do a build in a user's home dir rather than upgrade
anything on the system globally:
