If my read of the config.log is correct, it would appear that g77 was
used and not gfortran (which is installed):
C compiler: gcc -g -O2
C++ compiler: g++ -g -O2
Fortran compiler: g77 -g -O2
$ g77 --version
GNU Fortran (GCC 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-47.fc4)) 3.2.3
20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-13)
$ gfortran --version
GNU Fortran 95 (GCC 4.0.0 20050519 (Red Hat 4.0.0-8))
Checking 'man gfortran':
Gfortran is not yet a fully conformant Fortran 95 compiler. It can
generate code for most constructs and expressions, but work remains to
be done. In particular, there are known deficiencies with ENTRY,
NAMELIST, and sophisticated use of MODULES, POINTERS and DERIVED TYPES.
For those whose Fortran codes conform to either the Fortran 77 standard
or the GNU Fortran 77 language, we recommend to use g77 from GCC 3.4.
We recommend that distributors continue to provide packages of g77-3.4
until we announce that gfortran fully replaces g77. The gfortran
developers welcome any feedback on user experience with gfortran at
<fortran at gcc.gnu.org>.
