I think I am going to drop this patch.  It doesn't fix the problem I am
trying to address anyway.  After applying this patch and fixing some
other libgfortran issues with the latest libtool I still fail to build
libgfortran because when using the fortran driver to create libgfortran
the link line winds up containing -lgfortran on it.  This fails because
we haven't built libgfortran yet, that is what we are trying to do.  I
think I need to change the libgfortran Makefile to use C or the linker
to create libgfortran instead of using the fortran driver but I haven't
figured out how to do that yet.
