[PATCH] install.texi: Correct mention of Fortran in "full distribution" desc.


In the "Downloading GCC" chapter of install.texi, there's a description of what's included in the full distribution of GCC. The mention of both a Fortran 77 compiler and a Fortran compiler here is somewhat misleading -- there is no Fortran 77 compiler distinct from the main Fortran compiler. This patch corrects this.

I'd be interested in opinions on whether or not I should add a parenthetical note saying "(Fortran 77 in GCC 3.4 and earlier, Fortran 95 in GCC 4.0 and later)" after "Fortran" in the list, to cover the changeover from g77 to gfortran. Comments?

Checked with "make info" and "make pdf". Ok for trunk?
