While trying to compile Scilab-2.5 (the math/Scilab port is outdated),
I found that the "configure" script, when instructed to use the
GNU Fortran compiler, searchs for "g77". Unfortunately, this compiler
is installed as /usr/bin/f77. The solution is simple: "ln f77 g77",
but I think that the "g77" link should be standard, since it's coherent
with the existence of the "cc" and "gcc" links.

I think that this patch could do the trick:
