[Update] OK, I found the problem is on my side: a previous admin installed f77 on my machine. And nowadays not many people have f77 in their system, so this shouldn't happen to most users. But I'll keep the original message just in case.

[Original message] Not sure why, but I had to set F77=gfortran in order to build some Fortran 77 tests. Without using gfortran, it will try to use f77 as Fortran 77 compiler, and some compilations failed.

For example, the following compilation was executed when doing make check in the check() section of PKGBUILD:

f77 -I./../src/silo -I./../src/silo -I/usr/include -g -c -o arrayf77.o arrayf77.f

And it produced the following error:

   MAIN main:
Cannot open file

After using gfortran as the Fortran 77 compiler, everything worked fine.

@v8areu: I'm sorry but I'm unable to reproduce your issue. Do you have any special configuration linked to gfortran?

Hello, I got an error while building the package from 'makepkg -sri' command. Here are the following build and error message:

Thank you.

I have both the latest gcc and gcc-fortran from official package. I don't know why I got an error "checking whether we are using the GNU Fortran compiler... no"

@muon, @MartinDiehl: I was able to reproduce the bug but randomly... As proposed by @fallenrgh, downgrading to c++98 seems to fix the problem, but I do not know why...
Let me know if you still have some errors.

@eolianoe: Thanks for the reply. I have both hdf5 and hdf5_18 installed from the official repos. I just built with a commented out check function, and it built fine.

@muon, @MartinDiehl: Which package are you using for hdf5? In order to build the package you can disable the check function and I'll try to investigate more.

I just got the same result as @MartinDiehl on x86_64. (silo-4.10.2-5). Output from `makepkg` command:
Let me know if any other info would help.

@MartinDiehl: Are you sure, that you have the latest version of the PKGBUILD? Because it seems to be linked to bug reported by smradlev a few months ago and I'm able to build it in a clean i686 chroot.

For me, the build fails (on i686). It seems that a shell script is processed by the preprocessor

@fallenrgh: building fine here for now, I will add the `-std=c++98` flags if there is more trouble
