I tweaked a bit -- how's this:

- On NetBSD-6 (at least AMD64 and i386), and possibly on OpenBSD,
  libtool misidentifies properties of f95/g95, leading to obscure
  compile-time failures if used to build Open MPI. You can work
  around this issue by ensuring that libtool will not find f95/g95
  (e.g., by specifying FC=gfortran, or otherwise ensuring gfortran
  will be found earlier in the path than f95/g95), or by configuring
  Open MPI to disable the Fortran MPI bindings.
