Thanks for that. When I installed FC4, I used the option to install
"Everything", which is what I have done with each prior release going
back to RH 8.0. Of course with many things being moved to Extras,
"Everything" is now a shadow of it's former meaning.

It is noted that "Everything" includes RPMS that are not explicitly
listed in other pre-defined groups for installation.

In reviewing the Add/Remove Application GUI, gfortran is listed as an
"Extra Package" in the Development Tools Group.

g77 is not listed in that Group or in the Legacy Development Group, so
it would appear that it is a "silent" part of the "Everything"
installation procedure.

Removing the offending RPM:

rpm -e compat-gcc-32-g77-3.2.3-47.fc4

I now get:

  C compiler:                gcc  -g -O2
  C++ compiler:              g++  -g -O2
  Fortran compiler:          f95  -g -O2

I re-compiled and did note the warning messages that I believe Peter
referred to:

f95   -g -O2 -c blas.f -o blas.o
 In file blas.f:1561

      GO TO IGO,(120,150,180,210)

 In file blas.f:1603

               ASSIGN 210 TO IGO

make check-all passes with no errors, so no change there.
