gfortran is fine, the probleme is the getfem ./configure script generated by the
autotools which tries to detect something that looks like a fortran compiler,
and it finds one (which is your case), fails miserably if it cannot use it.

But you can build getfem without a fortran compiler (fortran is used to link
with some blas libraries, but getfem can provide its own blas). Just use the
--with-blas=builtin option for the ./configure script to make sure that getfem
uses its own blas.
