But what is today free fortran source alternative to Cernlib for 
"universal" numerical library ?

Some years ago I attempted to find Cernlib for Linux in Joint 
of Nuclear Research here in Russia (in Dubna). It was not simple task 
:-) As a result I received Linux source, but source RPM is clear step 
forward ;-) BTW, where is now available RPMS (you worote) ?

:-) I have some plus: I have MVS 3.8 working under x86 Linux at my 
home ! It works through Hercules emulator and includes Fortran IV (!)
compiler. (I worked w/mainfarmes about 20 years, so it's good for 
nostalgie ;-)). So theoretically I can to try to compile some sources
