The configure script/makefile assume you have a Fortran compiler installed
and give this fatal compilation error if you don't.

The configure script should be modified to notify the user when it can't
find a Fortran compiler and then build a makefile which skips over the few
GRASS modules written in Fortran so it doesn't fail with a fatal error.
