Hi Noel,
I know next to nothing about fortran application, so can you tell me more?

Is it just necessary to use a different linker? Then you can define new
'fortran-exe' target and define generator for that type so that it invokes
any linker you like. If this is too little information, just ask.

No. (b)jam has insufficient support for FORTRAN,
at least last time I looked. It needs to be able
to calculate build dependencies by processing
include stmts, similar to what it does for #include
with C and C++ source. And of course, as in C/C++,
a FORTRAN header may include one or more other FORTRAN headers.
