I for one defiantly need f77, given the number of
production applications that use it, am surprised to
hear it is not in current. That said, there is no
issue here getting it from pkgsrc, if that works.

This is the first I've heard of a f77 phase out (ie
consequence of gcc4), so far all my testing has
been with 3.1RCx---not sure all the gcc3 fall out,
but (even when f95 is readily available) I would
expect many sites to have problems if/when f77 is
