We do have the original Fortran code and only really want to be able
to handle changes in operating system needs (like changing Windows
requirements) or even porting to Linux.
But currently we are not able to compile new DLL:s even since we don't
have a Fortran compiler. Can GNU Fortran be used for testing?

For example is GNU Fortran (https://gcc.gnu.org/fortran/) possible to
build on Windows? I have very limited experience in compiler building
except for FreePascal, which I have built many times...

AFICT the *sources* are available via SVN:
