F77 makefile again.

Why do I have an impression that people who modify g77 makefiles in
egcs either don't care about parallel make or don't want to spend
time to write good makefiles. Here is an example:

In gcc/f/Make-lang.in, there is

	case "$(LANGUAGES)" in \
	  *[fF]77*) touch $(libsubdir)/lang-f77;; \
	  *) rm -f $(libsubdir)/lang-f77;; \

There is no dependency for f77.install-common. With parallel make, it
may fail since $(libsubdir) may not exit when f77.install-common is
