I've made two fixes for the package:

  1. Depending on gcc-fortran and using --enable-fortran, so that Fortran support is consistently enabled, and not depending on whether the user had gcc-fortran installed or not during build time.

  2. Changed the package from static to shared and generated the version info for libtool. This requires a patch to their configure system, and I've made it to use a versioning scheme of mapping version x.y.z to This isn't optimal - ideally the library author should set this, and increment whenever the ABI breaks or is extended in a backwards compatible fashion, but this is as close as we get to a reasonable scheme.

You can find the fixed package files here:

Doesn't build:

Currently this only builds a static library because the versioning doesn't conform to the libtool scheme and I have no idea how to fiddle with autotools to get the job done. If someone is willing to take a look, any help is appreciated.
