Yes, I would like to have that patch applied minus the PKGSRC_FORTRAN
setting. I use gfortran since over a decade anyway.

Now the trick question: What needs to happen so that this patch
actually makes its way into pkgsrc? I just checked CVS head and did
still see R-3.3.3 in there. Upstream is at 3.4.2 now. It seems that
posting to the mailing lists is not a good approach. I see patches
being posted (posting some myself) and then they go down in history.
Would bug reports on GNATS be better?

Alrighty then,
