I am doing some Fortran 77 stuff on Red Hat Linux 6.0. gcc
wouldn't compile my f77 code and gave me the error that it
couldn't find f771 to exec it. I found the file in
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-linux/ Once I copied f771 from
there to /usr/bin, the problem was solved. (More
specifically, I encountered the problem while compiling a
numerical analysis package named PETSc. More info on this
from http://www-fp.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/

Red Hat Linux 6.0 and later does not ship with fort77 anymore. You
will need to recompile that package from the source rpm (or use the
one in powertools) to get it woring right

You might also use the g77 compiler that comes with egcs in Red Hat
Linux 6.0
