[R] configure problems with fortran underscore

Just after R-0.63.0 came out I reported a problem to the list. I was
unable to get ./configure to complete it's job, because it couldn't find a
working fortran. It stopped after trying to test for underscore in
subroutine names. This was especially perplexing, since I could still
configure the older version (I had 62.2) with no error messages.
I tried suggestions of B.D. Ripley and others to set
the fortran compiler in config.site, but those did not work. I had
exactly the same problem with R-0.63.1. Today I discovered that
./configure --with-f77 does work. I wonder why it didn't work to set it
in config.site. When is config.site used?
Information on the just compiled version:
system sparc, solaris2.6
