On the topic of Fortran compilers, has anyone attempted a compilation
using eg77.  This is the version of g77 to accompany egcs, the
experimental GNU compiler system.  Now that gcc-2.8.0 is out I guess
that there won't be as much interest in egcc.  I understand though
that a version of g77 to accompany gcc-2.8.0 is still in the works.

 eg77 Description: The EGCS experimental Fortran compiler.
  This is the EGCS experimental version of the g77 Fortran compiler. Like
  the standard FSF release, it uses the gcc backend to generate code.
  It requires the egcc package to be installed in order to work.
