I presume you want to add some library to link line whenever .F -> .OBJ
generator is invoked.

I think it's almost possible. You'd need to write a custom .F -> .OBJ
generator that will return two targets:

1. The created .OBJ itself.
2. The additional library to be linked with.

So, higher level generator which asked for .F -> .OBJ conversion will get two
targets and try to use both of them.

The only question is how to get that additional target. I think you want to
link with searched libraries? Then you can just copy the code from which creates the new 'searched-lib-target'.
