Indeed, I just tried it and it works! Thanks. I am now able to compile
fortran code into the extension module.

The only problem is that I am not able to convince Cython to also
parse the .pyx files, it clashes with the numpy's implementation of
build_ext. Which usually is not a problem, as long as one doesn't need
to compile Fortran and .pyx at the same time.

So cmake seems like the only robust option anyway.
