Quite all right.  But this was for in-house code where a group has
agreed to all use the same compiler.  It's basically a matter of

./setup.py install

to work without further flags.  More generically, the way that
f2py_options work is kind of confusing, since it doesn't just pass
options to f2py :)

In any case, I'm very grateful for all your help, but I get the sense
that all of this distutils/f2py stuff would greatly benefit from
clearer documentation.  I imagine the doc team is already working on
a pretty full plate, but if anyone tackles this particular issue,
they'd be making a very useful contribution.
