With help from Brian and Craig, we have now F90 MPI bindings support
working properly. Because of the time required to compile the F90
bindings, they are automatically disabled in SVN checkout builds. You
can enable them with --enable-f90.

*** The F90 bindings are now automatically enabled in tarball and VPATH
builds ***

Unfortunately, the current generation of Libtool (1.5.x) does not
support building F90 shared libraries, so the F90 support library can
only be built statically (even if you --enable-shared, the F90 library
will be built statically). Bummer. :-\

Ralf Wildenhues, one of the Libtool developers and a long-time Friend
of LAM/MPI, assures me that F90 support will be included in the
forthcoming Libtool 2.0 series. He's even testing with the Open MPI
code base to ensure that everything will work properly. Woo hoo --
thanks Ralf!
