I continue to hear Apple's branch has broken gfortran, though never
hear specifically what is broken about it. I don't mind filing a
bug report with them too (always heard their Java engineers fixed
what got the most bug reports first). I imagine there are enough
people reading this list to file enough reports to at least get
someone to look at it. Or possibly get someone with expiring
"incidents" to use one on this. Do we have enough information
to say specifically what's wrong with gfortran?
