Hi Wendal,
A great source for gfortran, compiled for the latest OSX Lion can be found at the "high performance computing for Mac page
You also have the option of installing gfortran though Macports by installing newer version of GCC with a gfortran variant (i.e. sudo port install gcc45 +gfortran)
NCL 6.0 for Mac OS 10.6_64 will work with this set up. Im using OSX Lion and the precompiled binaries work just fine.
