I have updated the f2c package.  The changes are:

- based on slightly newer f2c sources (unfortunately the f2c people didn't 
  change the src/version.c file so its still f2c-19980516, I added the p1 so
  we have some indication of a change).

- renamed the f77 shell script to "f2c-f77" so it doesn't conflict with the "f77"
  installed by egcs.  We still have a conflict on "f2c.h" and "libf2c.a", but I
  vote that f2c gets to keep those names (after all it is the f2c packages).

- fixed a bug in the "f2c-f77" script which caused "-o" to not work right.

- added -fPIC support to the "f2c-f77" script.

I didn't do anything to NetBSD CVS tags as I just didn't know what I was
supposed to do when updating a package.


f77 -fPIC source.f
shows the lack of -fPIC support

f77 source.f -o outputfile
doens't produce "outputfile"
f77 -o outputfile source.f


add the update package.

new pkgsrc is at

the new distfile is at 

note, that the pkgsrc Makefile looks for the distfile at ${MASTER_SITE_LOCAL}
since f2c seems to change a lot but their distfile is always named f2c.tar.
