My system currently invokes the gcc-3.4 version of g77 by default, while c and c++ are compiled with gcc-4.1.3. This seems to be the recommended configuration for gcc-4.1. For gcc-4.2, the recommended configuration seems to be to invoke the gcc-4.2 version of gfortran by default.
The only requirement for g77 seems to be to link the final executable against g2c (but I'm currently taking care of this myself).
However, this is a test-case that wants to verify whether the c-prototypes correctly mirror the fortran calling conventions. So the fortran compiler and it's options would ideally be identical to the configuration used to compile the external fortran libraries (blas and lapack). Since these external libraries might also come from ACML (amd), MKL (intel) or any other "vendor supplied" library, this test-case will probably never really work anyway.
