I believe the gcc-gfortran package should support FORTRAN 77 as well as
more recent Fortrans.  I have seen reports of some issues with gfortran,
but I'm pretty sure it is intended to work, so problems should be
reported as bugs.

This caught my eye.  I noticed that there is a gcc-gfortran compiler,
but missing is the legacy g77 compiler, more noticably, that neither
compiler appears in the cache.  This becomes self-evident when one
installs NetBeans, and notices that it cannot seem to locate the fortran
compiler because it does not appear in the /usr/lib/ccache folder.

Why is that?
