This affects more packages, but in how deps are managed in Arch, the
gcc-fortran will be only for extra/blas, community/libmatio and
community/scilab4 because all others depends on blas.

extra/blas-20070405-2:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
extra/lapack-3.2.1-1:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
extra/octave-3.2.3-1:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
extra/python-numpy-1.3.0-2:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
extra/r-2.9.2-1:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3

community/freemat-3.6-3:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
community/libmatio-1.3.3-1:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
community/python-scipy-0.7.1-1:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
community/scilab-5.1.1-3:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3
community/scilab4-4.1.2-2:NEEDED libgfortran.so.3

Filling a bug report for each is the best way ;)
