http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Fortran states:

As Fortran modules are architecture and GCC version specific, they MUST 
be placed into %{_fmoddir} (or its package-specific subfolder in case 
the modules have generic names), which is owned by 'gcc-gfortran'. For 
directory ownership any packages containing Fortran modules MUST 
Requires: gcc-gfortran%{_isa}.

I did this in netcdf, and ended up with:

The following packages in the repository suffer from broken dependencies:

The results in this summary consider Test Updates!

package: netcdf-devel-4.0.1-2.fc11.i586 from 
   unresolved deps:

package: netcdf-devel-4.0.1-2.fc11.ppc64 from fedora-updates-testing-11-ppc
   unresolved deps:

because gcc-gfortran (like gcc) is apparently not multi-lib.

So, what to do?
