Fortran support is indeed certainly not in the scope of distutils. I
was just answering to the general problem that we have a huge build
infrastructure, not to the particular fortran problem. Having an
infrastructure for adding easily new tools, that can be distributed
separately, is something that distutils severely lacks IMHO.
