Comment (by david.w.watson@…):

 Replying to [comment:8 john@…]:
 > Are you missing the initial slash on the path you're giving to the `nm`
 > I'd expect following symlinks to ultimately get you to something like
 `/opt/local/lib/libgcc/libgfortran.3.dylib`; the precise path doesn't
 matter, so long as it's ultimately reachable from whatever wcslib is
 > The path that wcslib is using looks plausible to me -- if following
 symlinks from there doesn't get you to a `libgfortran`, then it probably
 means your gcc installation is broken. If it does, then check if the
 library provides the missing symbols (using `nm`, as above). If it
 doesn't, then, again, it looks like your gcc installation is broken. If
 the library both exists and contains the missing symbols, there may be a
 problem with the wcslib build.

 Evidently I didn't run the nm command correctly. Did it again, correctly,
 and got:

 0000000000081e7c T __gfortran_transfer_character_write

 I have no idea what this means. :(
