As Matthias said , gfortran is not yet (to the best of my knowledge)
an acceptable Fortran77 compiler, although GNU is working in that direction.
Please additionally see previous emails I've written about g77 vs.
To summarize, because g77 and gfortran produce different ABIs by
default, there will need to be a coordinated library transition to
switch completely from g77 to gfortran, similar to the various g++
transitions, if we are not to have complete chaos among Fortran
libraries and apps that use them.
This isn't going to be possible for the Etch timeframe. Post-Etch, I am
going to see whether I have time to work on this. My preliminary
efforts indicate it's going to be rather complicated.

Really? Aren't there a number of GNOME packages that use FFTW?
