The command works if I use --tag=f77 as a libtool option, but where in
my automake files can I specify a libtool option like --tag=f77?

Is there some way to specify libtool parameters like --tag in the
makefile? Actually I can't seem to find any documentation of --tag at

Modern versions of Automake (certainly 1.9.X, and maybe 1.8.X) automatically detect that libtool is version 1.5.X or newer and add the necessary --tag option. For older versions of Automake you could provide your own versions of the Automake compile and link macros. Anything you provide in your file overrides similar statements which would normally be provided by Automake.

Normally --tag should not be needed, but if the supplied tool name does not exactly match the tool name used when configure was executed, libtool can't properly guess the target language.
