--- Comment #3 from Damian Rouson <damian at sourceryinstitute dot org> ---
Oxford University graduate student Daniel Celis Garza has been working on this
for the bulk of his 11-week visit with me, which ends next week. For reasons
motivated largely by the difficulty of coaxing the GCC autotools build system
to install ISO_Fortran_binding.h and build the corresponding functions into a
library, we have decided to develop our own ISO_Fortran_binding.h and
contribute it and the corresponding C function definitions to OpenCoarrays.  A
secondary motivation is that the work can potentially benefit multiple

Daniel is the second developer who has attempted to modifying the GCC build
system for Sourcery Institute.  Both have given up after weeks of effort. 
Hopefully someone with knowledge of the GCC build system will at some point
modify the build system so that it builds OpenCoarrays in a similar manner to
the way in which it builds prerequisites such as MPFR and GMP, then
ISO_Fortran_binding.h and will be made available without users having to
install OpenCoarrays separately after installing gfortran.
