Yes, that is true, of course. But we keep these old tools around to
make sure that we can maintain backward compatibility with them. 

(I don't knows why someone would be using g77, with gfortran and g95
both available, but I'm sure that user is out there somewhere.)

I guess what I am really asking is: should I expect these tools to
work with shared libraries? Or is this something that is known to not

I don't see why they should be broken for shared libraries, but what
do I know? ;-)
