Please try
 ./configure F77=no FC=no

I've never seen this failure before and I never had a Fortran compiler installed although I already bootstrapped and used CVS libtool. Is it me or... is this
intended somehow?

Bug in Autoconf and/or Libtool (or their interaction).

Is there a bug report somewhere that explains this issue?  I did not find
anything on savannah...  Are you keeping bug reports / open issues on another

BTW, I can simply run ./configure && make check but distcheck still fails in the
same way.  It also fails if I do a VPATH build.

I guess for distcheck you'd need
 make distcheck DISTCHECK_CONFIGURE_FLAGS='F77=no FC=no'

then (untested).

It still fails the same way.

I'm just starting to remember that I usually use CVS autoconf/automake with CVS
libtool, and I get this problem when I use MacPorts' autoconf 2.61 / automake
1.10 / libtool 1.5.22...

*tries to bootstrap with the last CVS snapshot I compiled on my system two weeks

Nope it also fails in the same way with my last CVS autoconf 2.61b / automake
1.10a / GNU libtool 1.2432 2007/03/09 15:08:43 2.1a
