This is really an automake question, so you posted to the wrong list!

Remember that is just a Makefile, and that automake copies
any rules you add to into Makefile.

If bar.F90 somehow includes the contents of the other source files:

  EXTRA_SOURCES = x.F90 y.F90 z.F90

  bar.o: bar.F90 x.F90 y.F90 z.F90

Or if bar.o is made from partially linked objects (I'm not a fortran
programmer, so I don't know how the fortran compiler links):

  bar.o: x.o y.o z.o

If you have several dependencies in the form of either of the above,
you also might want to look into storing the dependencies in make
