Hi Andrea,

The error message points to line 11 in the source file, which is the 
line that contains


This is expanded by a C-preprocessor before being handed of to the 

The preprocessed file can be found in the directory:

/home/wa65fop/CS_Wu/THC_ZM1/Cactus/configs/<your config name>/build/SummationByParts

and is named Derivatives_2_1.f90.

It seems like the C-preprocessor is not expanding 
"DECLARE_CCTK_FUNCTIONS" correctly and that the preprocessed file 
contains a line like:

   end interface                                 &   interface

which is clearly not valid fortran. Can you check your preprocessed file 
and verify that this is indeed present?

I don't see anything obviously wrong with your preprocessor flags, but 
why is there a 
in your CPPFLAGS in you options file?
