Folks:

  Have a look at Jeff Templon's page
http://www.nikhef.nl/~templon/fortran.html which gives you a relatively
complete set of pointers and discussions of the various compilers.

  I used the Watcom compiler 10 years ago for f77.  There are others
that are good and have somewhat reasonable licenses.
