Drop LINKER_LANGUAGE C workaround for Fortran libraries in the Linux case

since it causes problems on non-Linux platforms.  To actually solve this

CMake bug on the Linux platform for Fortran libraries, CMake users need to

apply the following patch to their installed CMake-2.4.2 tree:

Thanks! It was indeed causing problems. With this change I can now compile with Fortran on OS-X. However, at the install phase I get the following error:

CMake Error: Error in cmake code at

iMac ~/Documents/OpenSource/PLplot/plplot-build : ls bindings/f77/libplplotf77*
bindings/f77/libplplotf77cd.dylib       bindings/f77/libplplotf77cd.dylib.9.1.0
bindings/f77/libplplotf77cd.dylib.9     bindings/f77/libplplotf77d.dylib

It looks like one of "libplplotf77cd.dylib.9.1.0" or "libplplotf77d.dylib" should be what it is actually looking for.

I haven't had as much luck with Python. I think that it might be related to the following bug in cmake with Frameworks on OS-X:


Any idea when cmake version 2.4.2 was created?
