How add variant when upgrading octave

Currently installed and active is:

       octave @3.8.2_18+atlas+gcc48+glgui 

This is flagged as having available upgrade to 4.0.2_0, so I executed...

      sudo port upgrade octave

…which generated the error:

     Error: org.macports.fetch for port octave returned: must set at least one Fortran variant

Presumably I want to add fortran

Is there some form of the upgrade command to do that?

Or do I simply have to do a new install:

   sudo port install octave @4.0.2_0+atlas+gcc48+glgui+gfortran
