There seems to be LOTS of stuff in /usr/local/lib/gcc in a dir tree  
that is both deep and uninformative (no name, either g77 or gcc). I  
bet i's mostly C stuff, mostly .h files. So, to be on the safe side  
I'll not remove (btw, where does Xcode dump it's compiler? in the / 
Developer branch?).

I cannot see any .dylibs connected to g77 there:

/usr/local/lib$ ls
