As long as you are using static libraries for lapack and blas, you
will need to link against gfortran. If you use dynamic libraries
instead (and make sure the dynamic libs are linked against gfortran)
this problem goes away.

If you don't want to build lapack and blas as dynamic libs, you need
to add another lib target to your $RDBASE/Code/Jamroot for gfortran
and expand the lapacklibs alias list. Something like this around line
86 of the Jamroot:

lib gfortran : : <name>gfortran ;
alias lapacklibs : lapack blas gfortran ;

Technically: yes. But there aren't pre-made Makefiles available, so it
won't be quick.

In the future (hopefully the not-too-distant future), the boost
libraries will support CMake and I will be able to switch the rdkit
build process over to that more familiar interface. Bjam is quite
flexible and powerful, but underdocumented and somewhat opaque to
