% On a Linux system, "touch" works fine for *.f files; when I "touch" the .f

Sounds dandy.

% However, when I "touch" a *.f90 file, and then run make (have a .SUFFIXES : 
% .f90 line in the makefile),
% NOTHING gets done (no update).

That certainly sounds like something is wrong, but there's no assurance
that it's with the GNU FileUtils.

% Please let me know what I am doing wrong, or is this a bug?

Let's see if touch is working properly.  If you

  ls -lF somefile.f

before and after your touch, you should see the timestamps updated.
Similarly, if you

  ls -lF somefile.f90

before and after your

  touch somefile.f90

command and see an updated timestamp, then touch is working as expected
and you can take a look at your Makefile and your Fortran code (which, I
fear, is not likely to be something with which the bug-fileutils list can
help you).

Best of luck, and please don't hesitate to follow up if you find any
anomalies in the behavior of touch.
