Make Cactus configure automatically correctly on Darwin 8.2.0.  This  
architecture is very similar to 8.1.0, but there are a few crucial  

(1) Add the compiler flag "-mlongcall" for GCC.  This is necessary  
for executables larger than 32 MB; otherwise there is a linker error.
(2) Support gfortran.
(3) Determine the GCC compiler versions differently -- the existing  
flag "-version" did not work for me, I think it has to be "--version"  
(4) Do not look for "/usr/lib/gcc/darwin/3.3" when deciding for the  
CPP, instead look at whether the compiler is GCC.

I don't know what the option "-no-cpp-precomp" is about, but I left  
it in.  I don't need it, but maybe other people do.

These changes concern all Darwin architectures.  If there are other  
Darwin users, they should test this patch, as it may potentially  
break their system.
