[OS X Emacs] Fortran syntax highlighting in Aquamacs

I just tried to use the latest version of fortran.el, but I couldn't  
get it to work. When I installed that in place of Aquamacs' built-in  
fortran.el, my .f files were no longer recognized as FORTRAN files.  
Perhaps the problem is related to the following warnings that I got  
while trying to byte-compile the file:

fortran.el:693:2:Warning: define-abbrev-table called with 5  
arguments, but
     accepts only 2

In fortran-mode:
fortran.el:833:28:Warning: reference to free variable

In end of data:
fortran.el:2173:25:Warning: the following functions are not known to  
be defined: characterp,

Oh well, it's not that big of a deal - I will just deal with this  
syntax highlighting problem until Aquamacs is updated to use the  
changes in emacs v. 23, whenever that is released.
