Is there some reason the Fortran part can't be separated out into a DLL? That's the C ABI Antoine was referring to, and most compilers can generate import libraries from binaries, even if the original compiler produced then in a different format.

Yes, and that is what Clang does on Windows. It is not as usable as MinGW
yet, but soon it will be. Clang also suffers fronthe lack of a Fortran
