/usr/lib/libcc_dynamic.a should be a symbolic link to 
/usr/lib/gcc/darwin/default/libgcc.a . Can you check both of these paths?

When did you download g77 from hpc.sourceforge.net? I am successfully 
using one downloaded today.

-lcc_dynamic seems to be coming at the end of the linker arguments for 
me (using CVS).

CVS builds fine for me. I know that I've fiddled with the OS X linking 
since the last release, so you will want to use CVS.
