Is there a reason the default version is unconditionally hard-coded at 4.8?


Seems to me it would be better to match the base compiler (e.g. 5.5 on
NetBSD 8.1).

I can override it in etc/mk.conf of course, but maybe this is
something that could use some attention?
My impression is that nobody is paying attention to Fortran.

I am guessing you are using a value matching base, and succeeding?  If
so, I would be fine with you adding logic to match base.

I think matching base means a value of 5, not 5.5, because these
versions omit the point release number.   4.8.x is like 5.x, as I
understand it.
Right, the version specified in the .mk file would only include major version if > 4.x.

My only concern is whether the package point release always matches the base compiler, but I think matching the major version is an improvement in any case over base GCC 5.5 + gfortran 4.8.
