You convert source code into a binary file by using a compiler. The compiler that you use depends on what language (C, Fortran, Pascal, etc.) the source code is written in. There is no such thing as "linux source code". To convert source code written in C, you need a C compiler to take one example.
To find out what a cray-pointer is in Fortran compilers I suggest you consult the Fortran documentation.
