 Unless I force the Fortran compiler through --with-g77, configure fails to
 find and use the installed g77. I would submit a patch for configure.in,
 but I can't quite follow the logic in configure.in.

$ ./configure 
creating cache ./config.cache
checking for main in -lm... yes

configure: error: Neither an F77 compiler nor f2c found
