[patch,wwwdocs] Update

:ADDPATCH wwwdocs:

Fortraners, is this patch ok?

This patch updates the files; I changed the
string to "GNU Fortran" in line with the recent changes to the manual; I
also changed more links to point to the wiki.

Additionally, this patch removes the links to the following outdated
HTML files, which should then also be deleted:


(For easier checking, those are:
http://gcc.gnu.orgfortran/usage.html )

Thus only the following two pages remain:


Note: To unclutter the patch, I did not include patches to delete the files.
