And in addition, very old versions of g77 (I'm not sure to which RedHat
version this age corresponds) used f2c's library unmodified.

I think the f2c/cc times (the compiler script was called fcomp?) were a
bit older. I moved back to my current job with RedHat 4.x (1997), and I
worked with self-compiled g77 already in my previous job....
