Hi Ale,

Please try a quick patch and let me know if it fixes the problem.
In mesa/star/public/star_lib.f, in the read_pgstar_inlist routine,
please replace

	use mod_pgstar


         use mod_pgstar, only: do_read_pgstar_controls

There is in fact another routine named read_pgstar_inlist in different
module, and the version of gfortran you are using is perhaps 
complaining about it although the other gfortran's don't seem to care.
