I had a chance to test an old Y-MP[1].  There, cf77 should be preferred
over fort77, because the latter does not allow to pass options through
to the linker (at all), while the former understands `-Wl,'.

Somebody with access to newer Cray systems and/or experience with
them please comment on my fortran.m4 changes (the ftn change is based
on online documentation only).

And, since I know there are a few Fortran gurus reading here: Does the
ftn compiler understand `-Wl,-somelinkflag' or do we really have to
resort to `-Wlsomelinkflag'?  cf77 docs state `-Wlsomelinkflag' as well
but do understand the common format.  This question is important to

        * m4/libtool.m4 (Limitations of Usual Tools) <sed>:
        Unicos 9 sed limitations.

        * lib/autoconf/fortran.m4 (_AC_PROG_FC): Try cf77 before fort77
        to get the option-enhanced interface on older Crays.  Try ftn for
        Fortran 95 (newer Crays).
