Yep.  In fact, nothing to do with GNU's fortran compiler either.  The
"problems" you describe are all classic fortranisms (as found on UN*X).
The underscores are by convention, the fortran libraries usually don't
directly supply libc, fortran is pass by reference while C is value
and in order to get the link right, you need fortran's runtime libraries
for the IO system and *only* the compiler even vaguely knows how to
get that ld invocation right... :-)  (finger down throat).
