Yes, this seems reasonable to me.

As I recall, the reason for editing the list during bootstrap is to avoid using g77 on systems that still have it installed, but for which system libraries like lapack have been compiled with gfortran. Cases like that lead to linking problems, or mixing of calling conventions for some functions (complex arguments/return values, I think).

I agree with Mike that specifying our own list is the wrong thing to do.
