[R] R-1.1.0 - f2c in configure

When trying to build R-1.1.0, the configure script reported no Fortran
compiler, even though '/usr/bin/f2c' was present, and R-1.0.1 had found
and successfully used this.  I traced this to an apparent typo in line
2067 of configure:

  for name in g77 fort77 f77 f90 xlf cf77 fc; do

changing this to:

  for name in g77 fort77 f77 f90 xlf cf77 f2c; do

allowed the script to 'find' f2c.  However, it then reported that f2c
didn't work (although it had worked with R-1.0.1).

checking whether the Fortran 77 compiler (f2c  ) works... no

At this point, I created a small Fortran program and messed around with
the testing section but could not solve the problem.  Any expert clues?
