- New and updated macros for Fortran support:
AC_FC_CHECK_BOUNDS to enable array bounds checking
AC_F77_IMPLICIT_NONE and AC_FC_IMPLICIT_NONE to disable implicit integer
AC_FC_MODULE_EXTENSION to compute the Fortran 90 module name extension
AC_FC_MODULE_FLAG for the Fortran 90 module search path flag
AC_FC_MODULE_OUTPUT_FLAG for the Fortran 90 module output directory flag
AC_FC_PP_SRCEXT for preprocessed Fortran source files extensions
