My reading of that page implies G77 is no longer needed
(or provided for that matter). Thought CRAN G77 binaries
and GFORTRAN (G95) didn't mix. Is this the
"not yet ready for prime time" developer setup or the new
recommended setup for everyone?

PS. Is there an TrimTheFat script for your universal
compiler for those of us who will not be upgrading anytime

SIGSIG -- signature too long (core dumped)
