A much needed simplification of g77 and libf2c's Makefiles.

- Organization: Moene Computational Physics, Maartensdijk, The Netherlands
The Make-lang.in in the gcc/f directory and the Makefile.in's in libf2c
and its subdirectories contain (a lot of instances of) the following
case "$(LANGUAGES)" in \
*[fF]77*) $(STAMP) lang-f77;; \
*) rm -f lang-f77;; \
if [ -f lang-f77 ]; then \
... do something ...; \
else true; fi
I get the impression that this code is a left-over from the days that
LANGUAGES="foo,bar,baz" dictated which languages got build and that the
writer of the Fortran Makefiles (probably Dave Love) wanted to prevent
all sort of actions (like building the Fortran run-time library) when
f77 wasn't part of LANGUAGES.
Now that this mechanism has been deprecated, it might make sense to
remove this stuff from the various Fortran Makefiles.
I plan to do this, unless someone comes up with a very good reason not
Thanks in advance for any insight offered.
