My understanding is that libcaf is delivered in source form, and the
end user is expected to compile it against the correct MPI library on
the target. So yes, one could be a bit more conservative here than in
libgfortran proper (although one could expect the user to have access
to the gcc version corresponding to gfortran..). But Tobias certainly
knows better.

> PS2: A third issue Iâve though about is: should we get rid of the following __GNUC__ test? libgfortran is not used as a standalone Fortran runtime library, and I think it is (and never will) be built by something else than a stage3 compiler.

What about --disable-bootstrap? Does it just skip stage1 and stage2,
and stage3 is used to compile libgfortran, or is the host compiler
used to build libgfortran as well? If the former, yes I guess we can
remove #ifnderf __GNUC__ stuff?
