[committed] PR15747: Document /bin/sh hang on mips-sgi-irix5

PR bootstrap/15747 reports that /bin/sh can hang on mips-sgi-irix5
and that (as on other platforms) CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/ksh will work
around this.

The patch below updates install.texi accordingly.  I copied the
smallexample formatting ("   % ", etc.) from other examples.

Tested using "make info" and "make dvi".  Installed on mainline
and 3.4 branch.


	PR bootstrap/15747
	* doc/install.texi (mips-sgi-irix5): Document that /bin/sh has been
	reported to hang during bootstrap and that CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/ksh
	can be used to work around this.

  when configuring GCC@.  You need to use GNU @command{ar} and @command{nm},
  also distributed with GNU binutils.
+ Some users have reported that @command{/bin/sh} will hang during bootstrap.
+ This problem can be avoided by running the commands:
+ @smallexample
+    % CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/ksh
+    % export CONFIG_SHELL
+ @end smallexample
+ before starting the build.
