That's correct. Apple is not currently supporting g77.
Is there a reason for that ?
Roughly the same reason why we don't have an Ada compiler. It isn't
uncommon for companies to just include C/C++ as they represent 90%+ of
the market and ignore the rest. That said, in theory just grabbing and
building an FSF release or a release off our cvs server should just
work, if one wants Fortran or Ada. Though, from time to time, there
might be bugs that cause various non-functionalities.
People that are interested in other language will have to test,
productize and get those patches in.
