When you are having problems with downloaded stuff, you should say what
software (including versions) you used for downloads and decompression.  
I don't know about f2c, but I had a terrible time with DEmacs because I 
was using PKUnZip 1.02 on files that had been compressed with PKZip 1.10.  
(This was a PKWare bug; the -t option told me that v1.0 was enough).  
This (or similar) *could* be your problem ... but noone can tell unless
everybody gives full info.  (The archivists at WUARCHIVE.WUSTL.EDU and
SIMTEL20.WSMR.MIL say that the most common problems with bad downloads
are (1) downloading binary files in text mode and (2) wrong software
versions.  These sound a lot like your "NULL pointer violations" to me.)
