There is one error with a fairly clear error message:

 > Error in firstlib(which.lib.loc, package) :  > Tcl/Tk support is not available on this system

and one warning:

 > Found the following sources/headers with CR or CRLF line endings:

 >    src/fthrt.f
 > Some Unix compilers require LF line endings.

What do you find unclear about the messages? You don't have Tcl/Tk support, but something you are doing requires it; you have used ASCII standard text files (as on Windows) or possibly the weird files that used to be used on MacOS, rather than following the Unix conventions that some systems need.
