Hi Patrice,

Here is the latest from the GCC gfortran developers:

  http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/fortran/2007-10/msg00324.html
  http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/fortran/2007-10/msg00325.html

Since there is no guarantee, it is (at least in theory) possible for a
Fedora GCC update to cause *.mod file incompatibilities.  It seems
rather unlikely, though.

Maybe this issue could be best handled as a check-list item when GCC
updates occur?  There are only a small number of Fedora packages that
provide *.mod files.  And they could be re-built whenever GCC is
updated.

What do you think?

Ed
