And I'm a bit of an idiot.  This should be a permanent change; since
numarray itself is written in C, there is no part of it which gets
compiled with Fortran and so no reason to link against vendor Fortran
libraries.  I realized this when looking at the Numeric setup.py, which
uses the library list above and which has always built fine on my
Absoft-equipped systems.
