Yes, it applies to everything.

I don't know if it is ok to mix versions of gfortran. Normally, gcc 
doesn't break ABI (binary compatibility) between minor versions, so you 
could try. Note that you should be able to change the fortran compiler 
for ATLAS without recompiling everything (fortran is only used for the 
fortran interface, ATLAS itself is pure C).
