libraries with g77 and then tried to link against them with gfortran,
you might run into problems.

My advice would be to use a single fortran compiler for building
everything: Open MPI, your libraries, your apps. I prefer gfortran

that gfortran is "slower" than g77 -- google around and see what the
recent buzz is.

FWIW: I tend to use the gnu suite from --
it contains pre-built gcc/g++/gfortran binaries and libraries for
