[doc, fortran] PATCH: address broken web references

This wasn't fun, no fun at all. :-/

Toon, I prefer not to commit this on my own, because you may want to

Would you mind reviewing this and apply it to mainline and on the 3.4
and 3.3 branches (as far as it applies there)?

	* g77.texi (Aligned Data): Remove obsolete paragraph including a
	broken link.
	(Floating-point Errors): Remove links to

	(Language): Fix link to Fortran books.
	(Projects): Remove obsolete paragraph including a broken link to
	(Trouble): Remove obsolete paragraph including a broken link to

	* invoke.texi (Overall Options): Remove broken reference to
	rat7.uue (which was of dubious copyright status anyways).

	* root.texi (www-burley): Fix URL.
