Thanks, Toon. I have found the problem. It seems that
libF77/main.o was split out of libg2c.a and placed in
libfrtbegin.a. The merge of gcc 3.1 into the FreeBSD
tree did catch this change. So, FreeBSD either needs
to edit g77spec.c to remove the dependence on libfrtbegin.a
or split main.o out into a new library.
Why was main.o split out into a separate library? The
ChangeLog entry for libfrtbegin.a doesn't contain
any info about why this change was required.
