g77 patch (g++ and other front end maintainers take note!)

(Dave Love, could you install this patch for me please?)

Aside from a one-liner, most of this patch remove the __eprintf
function from the g77 front end.  I believe all front ends should
do the same, because this function is provided in libgcc2.c.

As a result of making this fix, internal g77 crashes due to
triggering assert() calls have more sensible diagnostics.

Previously, they implied that the crash was within g77's
copy of __eprintf, since it calls abort().

So, if this patch is wrong, let me know and I'll revert it, but
we really should find a better solution than to have an identical
function in each front end, and solve the confusing diagnostic
problem some other way perhaps.
