there IS support for the PGI compilers - if you look in
instlib/machine/supported/linux, you'll find 'Makefile.header' and
'Makefile.header.pgf77' . If you rename the latter to 'Makefile.header'
(after renaming  'Makefile.header' to 'Makefile.header.g77', maybe) it
will get used by 'make install'.

In my experience, there is little difference in speed between g77
(2.95-1) and pgf77 (3.1).
