If you need to change options after configure (which is a bad idea) you
 need to edit Makeconf and etc/Makeconf rather than config.status.

I found that Sun f77 on Solaris 2.5.1 needed -R and -L options pointing to
the Sun Fortran libraries (in /opt/SUNWspro/lib on my system).

I still use Sun f77 but now on Solaris 2.6 and it seems to work
