The message told you to read a file for more information

According to the included documentation file which the error message
references, if you are not using gcc as your compiler (package gcc-fortran)
you need to explicitly set the FPICFLAGS environment variable. Exactly what
it should be depends on your compiler

You might want to try installing gcc-fortran and using that instead
