This shouldn't be too difficult I believe. You need to adjust the gcc
package to enable the fortran language, and make sure the fortran
runtime library is copied to the target.

Here is a completely untested (not even compile tested) attempt at
adding some basic Fortran support to the gcc package:

Let me know if this somewhat works, and please submit a patch once/if
you get this working!

Thanks!
