a recent version of gfortran works (almost) perfectly on Mac OS-X and
I am using it all the time. It gives a warning (errno=2) during load:
   /usr/bin/ld: warning can't open dynamic library: etc. etc.
but it produces a working executable (it has obscure problems with
the system blas that disappear if the fortran blas are used).

If no executable is produced, there must be an error or a warning  
On some machines, depending on configuration, a harmless warning like
the above may be sufficient to stop loading. If this is the case, try  
to add
the following to LDFLAGS: -Xlinker --noinhibit-exec
