The main problem is that Michael Goffioul is stuck with f2c because
there is no free MSVC-compatible Fortran compiler.
Some compilers are available gratis but don't allow distributing the
resulting binaries the way we do for Octave.
If we put money together, we could buy him a license for a proprietary
compiler; still, other users wanting to build on Windows/MSVC will
need to get licenses of their own.
I guess it's just too much trouble that outweighs the benefits of
requiring a Fortran 90 compiler for Octave.
