Unless I am missing something, the currently open Fortan issues are:
+ XLF, which didn't work in 1.7.3 either (just verified this today)
+ PathScale and Open64 which fail building in ompi/mpi/fortran/use-mpi-f08/

The XLF issue is not a regression.
The remaining PathScale/Open64 issue MAY be a compiler bug.

If Jeff follows through on his promise to
implement --disable-mpi-fortran-08 then use of that option is a work-around
for the regression on PathScale and Open64.
