Moving ARM g77 to g77-3.0
g77-2.95 has a nasty bug on ARM which prevents linking of any FORTRAN
libs (#90363). Our current status is that all packages with binaries
which link to FORTRAN libs fail to build! This bug is not likely to be
3.0 fixes this problem, but then maintainers must hand-build using
g77-3.0, which is not a viable long-term solution. I know some arches
have 3.0 as their default compiler. So, what are the criteria, and
what's the procedure, for changing the default g77 compiler on ARM from
2.95 to 3.0? Would we have to switch our C and C++ compilers as well,
or can we just switch FORTRAN?
Please CC me in replies.
