AFAIK there is no official gfortran support. I have patches to Apple's  
gcc that allow to build gfortran from Apple's sources (see http://r.research.att.com/tools/ 
  ). Essentially it requires gcc 4.2 which is now part of Xcode 3.1  
(gcc 4.0 was hopeless in that respect). I'll release another binary  
once the Xcode 3.1 sources are available.
