Why? One might well want the option to use any of the several FORTRAN  
compilers from ports.

The various ports that use Fortran should be checked to see what  
version of FORTRAN they want. I suspect the easiest fix is to have  
$FC empty by default and for dependent ports to output a helpful  
A better fix would be to make ports dependent on an appropriate  
compiler port, but that's a lot of work and some users will prefer  
ifc anyway.
