I installed scilab from a fresh ports tree on FreeBSD 7.0.
I used all defaults in the installation.
Scilab starts and immediately exits.
/usr/local/bin/scilab: /usr/local/lib/pvm//lib/pvmgetarch: not found
Installing pvm-3.4.5_3, scilab still exits with no error message.

I will try reinstalling scilab without pvm, tomorrow.
