[PATCH] Texinfo docs: Change "gfortran" to "GNU Fortran"


In the Gfortran documentation, we recently standardized on "GNU Fortran" rather than "gfortran" as the official name to use when referring to the Fortran compiler. This patch extends this standardization to the main GCC documentation.

Checked with "make pdf" and "make info".

-------------------------------------------------------
2006-10-10  Brooks Moses  <bmoses@stanford.edu>

	* doc/contrib.texi, doc/install.texi, doc/standards.texi:
	Standardize on "GNU Fortran" as the official name of the Fortran
	compiler.

-------------------------------------------------------

Ok for trunk?
