I have never created ufuncs, but as the docs you point to seem very 
c-oriented, I just wanted to make sure you know that calling fortran 
from c is not too complicated (at least with gnu compilers).

If I would try, I would first wrap the fortran code in c, and then look 
at how to create ufuncs from c-code, but I have no idea how to do the 
second part.

A page that seems rather informative and that was suggested by a google 
search on mixing c and fortran is 
<http://www.cae.tntech.edu/help/programming/mixed_languages>.


I hope it helps a bit, although it does not answer your question.
