My understanding of Automake is that it uses particular compiler
variables for predefined lists of source file extensions. It will
invoke the $(F77) compiler for files ending with .f and .for, and the
$(FC) compiler for files ending in .f90, .f95, .f03, and .f08. Since
all of our Fortran sources end in .f and .for, and are Fortran 77
compatible, I don't think $(FC) is (or can or should be) currently
