I am building all Mac gfortran binaries. The detailed instructions are on the same page where you got the fortran from:

The Xcode builds are using Apple's Xcode sources + libfortran + gcc/fortran from gcc-4.2.4 sources + diff is on the tools page. The build is done the same way Apple Xcode is compiled.

The alternative GNU build is done from the GNU release sources and is described on the page as well.

Sure, not problem. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. (I think I was talking to Max a while ago about improvements to Homebrew ;) - I like the idea)
