[Patch, fortran] Typo and grammatical fixes in intrinsic.texi (repost)

:ADDPATCH fortran:

(Resending; I forgot the cc: to patches!)

In looking over Daniel Franke's recent intrinsic.texi patch, I noticed a
few typos and small errors that were in the original file.  Most of
these are pretty trivial (some cut-and-paste errors, some typos, a few
bits of tortured grammar); the one that perhaps merits most note is that
the MODULO() documentation erroneously included the table of specific
names from MOD().  Thus this patch, to fix those existing errors.

I do have a question for future corrections: in the examples of
procedure calls, where should spaces be inserted?  Should we have (for
instance) @code(C = FUN(X,Y[,Z[,KIND]])}, or @code{C = FUN(X, Y, [, Z [,
KIND]])}, or spaces only some of those places, or...?  Also, in the
"Syntax" entries, should we have discrete examples for each allowable
argument combination, or is []-notation allowable there?  In both of
these cases, the existing documentation is inconsistent.

Finally, I'll note that this is my first patch submission, so I hope I'm
doing it right; advice/corrections welcome!  I do have a copyright
assignment on file, but I don't have write access, so someone else will
have to commit this for me if it's approved.
