Ralf, you are abandoning your usual politeness!

Hung over today from too much of that wonderful German beer? ;-)

I think I have it sorted out, and the important fact to remember is
that the libtool calling of these macros will not matter *if* F77 and
FC are already set.

The problems I was having had to do with situations where there was no
fortran 90 compiler, but there was a fortran 77 compiler. In that
case, my configure script was setting F77 but not FC.

Libtool noticed that FC is not set, and so it sets it, mucking
everything up for me.

I fixed the problem by making sure that, in this case, F77 and FC are
both set (to the same thing).

This stop libtool from messing with them, and everything works fine
for me now (until I find the next problem ;-).

Thanks for all the replies, and Ralf, try some vitamin B and a good
strong cup of coffee! ;-)
