Besides what Lorenzo said, I think the problem might be here as well. In 
the static version of xcrysden, the fntunit program is linked against an 
old f77 library which might not be present on your system. Try to run 
ftnunit alone and see what happens, or try "ldd 
${XCRYSDEN_TOPDIR}/bin/fntunit". If this is the case there are 2 
possible solutions: (i) add the library to your system, or (ii) 
recompile the source ftnunit.F using your system compiler and replace 
the executable.
