- After digging into the Makefile and configure for fftw3 I discovered
  that USE_FORTRAN was only used to determine what name mangling scheme
  it had to use to compile the shim libs for fortran, but compiling everything
  using 'C' anyway.
  With this diff, the slave ports fftw3-long-fortran, fftw3-float-fortran
  and fftw3-fortran disapear since the shims are always built, without
  necessitating the use of a USE_FORTRAN.

- Ensure Fortran shim is not built if USE_FORTRAN is not set.
- Split Fortran option into slave ports fftw3-fortran long-fortran float-fortran
- Have to bump PORTREVISION for package builds etc..
- Fix silly spelling mistakes "Percision" -> "Precision" noted.
