FSF GCC now has native Darwin/OS X support UNIX
For those of you fortran heads, here's good news. FSF GCC now officially supports Darwin/OS X, meaning that you can grab latest source at and build a version of gcc, including fortran (g77), on your OS X box.

Although I don't personally use fortran, this would be a breakthrough for scientists and engineers who use Macs and have *a lot* of fortran libraries. Read yourself Stan Shebs' comment at darwin dev list.

compiling g77 for OSX
Authored by: amar on Jul 11, '01 08:46:13PM

Just installed OSX on my G4 Powermac and have had some success installing
X windows and other stuff. Saw the reference to fortran under Darwin and attempted
to compile gcc 3.0 and also the CVS version with no success so far. I am most
interested in getting fortran to work. Has anyone done this successfully?
Thanks, F. Amar
