Easy way to get gfortran?

I have a fair bit of experience with Linux actually, but this is a newbie question. On Fedora 6, is there a convenient command line method for getting and installing the gfortran compiler? I'm using a SPARC port of FC6, which doesn't come with gfortran by default, and the package manager seems to have problems. IIRC, there is some really simple command line tool (yum perhaps?) that will download, compile, and install packages for you. I'd like to do with that gfortran.

I just use the search feature of yum to see if a package is available...
$ yum search gcc-gfortran
gcc-gfortran.i386 : Fortran 95 support

The package name maybe abit different for sparc.

Then, you can tell yum to install it...
yum install gcc-gfortran

Hmm... I tried that, but I don't think it worked.

yum search gcc-gfortran
