Please, can you be more specific as of why you cannot install in and
send us the installer log? That would be helpful.

No it's not. Everything in /usr/local is external software not
supplied by Apple. Besides Xcode includes no Fortran compiler.

That depends. We are shipping g77 now with R to make sure the
configuration of the binary matches the compilers used. Your own
version of g77 may or may not match it - there are too many different
version around by now to tell. Basically if you can compile Fortran
packages from sources it should be fine.
