pkgsrc as of a few days ago
something in the handling of USE_LANGUAGES+= fortran manages to not
get F77 set and we end up with "F77=" in our MAKE_ENV. However, some
packages will try to use F77 if set. For example, math/octave-forge
calls /usr/pkg/bin/mkoctfile from math/octave-current during the build
and because F77 is set to an empty value, it fails to build its fortran
cd /usr/pkgsrc/math/octave-forge && make
note that mkoctfile complains of not being able to build fortran sources
cd /usr/pkgsrc/math/octave-forge && make show-var VARNAME=MAKE_ENV
and note F77 is not properly set.
not sure. The compiler.mk stuff is magic to me right now.
