   From the following response by Cygnus to Dr. Tsu-huei Liu, they seem not 
to support g77 under Cygwin32.

   BTW, Mumit Khan announced the binaries of g77-0.5.20 for gnu-win32 b17.1

   I downloaded it and tested, but encountered the following message.  
I suppose gcc.exe which recognizes g77/f771 should be also included in the 
binary distribution.

gcc : language f77 not recognized
gcc : xxx.f: Fortran compiler not installed on this system
