Install Linuxbrew for non-sudo package management

Linuxbrew is a fork of Mac homebrew, allowing install of the latest compilers and other packages without sudo.

  1. Use the Linuxbrew install script, which installs Ruby and Linuxbrew
  2. Press Ctrl-D when asked for the password to install to ~/.linuxbrew without sudo.
  3. install desired packages. Gfortran comes with
    brew install gcc
    

Generally the latest compilers are available from Linuxbrew, as will homebrew for Mac.
