The latest GNU gFortran has the extensions you need and will produce a 64-bit 
native executable optimised for an AMD processor, rather than one optimised 
for an inferior brand of 32-bit processor.

You should *never* install *any* software which does not come with source 
code -- you don't know where it's been.  If the software vendor isn't 
prepared to show you the source code, that's a clear sign that there is 
something in there that they don't want you to see.

You wouldn't buy a cake that didn't have a list of ingredients on the box, 
would you?
