FORTRAN libraries are required for the Solaris 2.x versions. Actually
compiling is not required unless you make alterations from the
distributed binaries. FORTRAN and C compilers are not bundled
with Solaris, but are available as extra cost options. If you wish
to run GCG on Solaris 2.x, you should get and install the compilers.
