Hmm, that's odd. I'm using the following versions: automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.8.3 libtool --version (GNU libtool) 1.5.2 (1.1220.2.60 2004/01/25 12:25:08)

Not quite sure what you mean here. The name of the tool (f95) doesn't
change between the time configure is executed and the attempted link
takes place.
