If I go ahead and remove that flag, then the compilation crashes out at the linking stage with:
g++: error: 3DconnexionClient: No such file or directory
g++: error: unrecognized command line option '-weak_framework'
make: *** [vmd_LINUXAMD64] Error 1

Subject: -fpascal-strings flag when compiling with TDCONNEXION option
If I add TDCONNEXION to configure.options when compiling VMD 1.9.3a7, it adds -fpascal-strings to the INCDIRS in the Makefile. At least on the Ubuntu system I'm currently on, this immediately leads to a crash:
Compiling OpenGLExtensions.C --> OpenGLExtensions.o ...
g++: error: unrecognized command line option '-fpascal-strings'
make: *** [OpenGLExtensions.o] Error 1
>From the limited information I could find on this flag from Google, I gather it's only necessary for MacOS. Is it safe to just remove it?
