It's libfortranposix0 for the runtime library and libfortranposix-dev
for the development package. (If you read by chance debian-devel you
should ignore the discussion about naming there for now.)

What's the name of the tarball provided by upstream? You should use
that. Both fortranposix and libfortranposix is perfectly acceptable,
depending on how the source is usually called.

You should file it with the name of the source package. Not that it
matters much, though. But filing it with the current SONAME would not
make much sense.

Kind regards,
