You need a Fortran compiler before you build MPICH2, because it needs to be
built with Fortran support. If you plan on using gfortran as your Fortran
compiler (and not ifort, for instance), then the answer to your question is
"yes, you must install gfortran first".

Depends on your system. Some Linux distributions might not come with all
of the necessary prerequisites, but the "configure" phase of the mpich2
installation should tell you what is missing, if anything.
