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.
