[Numpy-discussion] numpy build: automatic fortran detection

What would it take to automatically detect which flavor of fortran to 
use to build numpy on linux?

The unit tests are clever enough to detect a mis-build (though 
surprisingly that is not done as part of the build process), so surely 
it can be done.

Even if there is no interest in putting this into numpy's setup.py, we 
have a need for it for our own system. Any suggestions on how to do this 
robustly would be much appreciated.
