Adding dependency scanning for fortran should be easy to somebody who knows
the syntax. The c scanner in builtin.jam is a good base, so one has to move
declaration of fortran type of tools/types/fortran.jam, copy-paste the c
scanner to that file, and adjust the regular expressions used for scanning.

Of course, I can help with that, but I'm not sure I even have fortran compiler
anywhere, so can't do it myself.
