This is probably a better solution, since it also
handles Makefiles where f77 is explicitly spelled out. Also, adding a
symlink to f77 is a less intrusive change to gfortran than changing
build in rules would be for make (it would mean we are no longer
compatible with other platforms or the upstream make).
