No the problem is actually with f2c.  Anything built with f2c will have a 
reference to MAIN__ (the "fortran main") so the application has to provide 
one - normally a null function

int MAIN__()
   return 0;

Many fortran using applications have this hack already but increasingly 
newer ones don't as other/newer fortran compilers don't need it.

Provide the function or compile all fortran with a different compiler.
Attached is the patch that deals with it in the wip/py-numpy package.
