Hi, it seems that you haven't a functional Fortran compiler on your
machine, or that your PATH environment variable isn't set correctly so
that configure can't find it.
Please note that a Fortran 90 compiler is required -- g77 isn't enough.
On the Linux-x86 platform, the officially supported compiler is Intel's
ifort (available at Intel's web site, free for non commercial use). The
open source G95 compiler (www.g95.org) is also known to compile
