If you use fort77 you need to remove the -export-dynamic flag. This can be
done by uncommenting the LDFLAGS section of config.site and putting in
only the other necessary flags (probably none) and reconfiguring.

You can also edit the -export-dynamic out of the LDFLAGS line in Makeconf
and etc/Makeconf instead of rerunning configure, but this isn't

In many ways the best solution is to install the egcs compiler which
includes gcc and g77. It is certainly in Red Hat 5.2, and may be in Red
Hat 5.0.
