f2c is 20000510 for RedHat and 20001107 for Mandrake. How come?

I have installed f2c-20000510-5 on my RedHat 7.0 machine. I am trying to
compile an other program working previously and using f2c and it does not
work. Before trying to look in depth into the source of the program I
wanted to check if I had the last version of f2c.
I looked on rpmfind.net and discovered that RedHat was using f2c 2000/05/10
when Mandrake is using f2c 2000/11/07. I looked on the f2c web server and I
did not find any particular release. It seems that the last modifications
on the code have been carried out on March 20th 2001.
Could it be possible to get a newer f2c on rawhide? I looked in the content
of f2c-20000510-5.src.rpm by using a simple
rpm -qpil /home/root/redhat/add-rpm/src/f2c-20000510-5.src.rpm
and I found a file called f2c-20000510.patch. I don't know why this patch
is here and I did not dare to try to apply this patch on the new source
code, in order to create a newer package by myself.
So, my question is very simple, is it possible to get the latest f2c on
Thanks in advance for any answer.
f2c-20010320-1 has been built.
But where can I find it?
I looked on ftp.redhat.com, on the rawhide section but I did not find it.
Rawhide is usually pushed on Fridays.
