Top level: Separate src release scripts from Makefile

Corresponding to Andrew's wise suggestion, I simply separated the release
script material into a separate file, which can be dealt with
independently of the Makefile.  The new file is "src-release", and it's
just a Makefile, so as to demand minimal code change.  The only changes
are replacement of '-f' with '-f src-release'.  I would have
put it in a subdirectory, but that would have demanded more substantial

With this change my other changes no longer break anything and can be

I'm currently testing 'make -f src-release gas.tar.bz2'.

I assume the rest work, since there's no real code change, and the others
are all along the same lines.

'src-release' doesn't need to be in the gcc tree.

The admin scripts to make gdb, bintuils, newlib, etc. snapshots need to
be changed to use 'src-release' rather than '' -- but I don't
know where those scripts are.

The documentation for snapshots and releases needs to be changed
correspondingly, but again I don't know where it is.

If this patch is approved, I won't put it in until I've found all these
points and arranged to deal with them.

Further comments welcomed.
