Even though the OS happens to be Linux, there is no Fortran install on
this box.  It would be smart for the Libtool tests to change language
tests from "Fail" to "Untested" if the required compiler is not
available.  That way 'make check' can succeed based on the available
compilers.  This would seem to be a requirement for non-GCC
