Would it be bad
if projects using Automake required GNU Compiler for Fortran?

Extremely. Folk doing serious Fortran development routinely experiment with multiple compilers, and would not appreciated being limited in any way here.

As well, Fortran vendors tend to put their efforts into improving the optimisers, and seem to be careless about supporting conventional option sets. This means that automake/autoconf are probably even more valuable to Fortran developers than to others, though I get the impression rather few currently use automake/autoconf, though that's partly because they currently support Fortran rather poorly.

All the best,
