request - uniform Portfile standard to handle the different possibilities of Fortran compilers

I don't write code in Fortran, but some of the ports I use require Fortran.
Different Portfiles depend on different Fortran compilers. Contrast fftw-3(g95, gfortran/gcc4.2, gfortan/gcc4.3) pgplot(g77 on PPC, gfortran/gcc4.2 on i386) and cfitsio(gfortran/gcc42). There are at least 4 compilers to choose from.
My request: formulate a standard to allow any of the compilers to be selected with a variant. The fftw-3 Portfile comes closest with variants to select any one of 3 compilers. If possible, I'd like to see g77 deprecated.
