See my attachment in

But nevertheless ... my main question was about fortran. While the
ticket with root can be solved independently, it is not even clear to
me whether this is a problem with MacPorts or with Root.

What is the politically correct way to say that it doesn't compile then? ;)
The way how it works or doesn't work is yet a different issue ... I
haven't even started using it.

(It might be that there is a workaround, but I'm not aware which one
that is. I spent soooooo much time trying to figure out why
clhep/geant4/root/gate don't compile that I almost gave up. Luckily
some angel sent a link to a standalone with working Qt
interface today.)
