[Patch] Remove gccbug from bugreport.texi


(I'll probably get flamed for this...)

The last sentence of the second last paragraph of bugreport.texi has two
typos and one grammar error. I used this to get rid of the note about
gccbug entirely. Everyone has WWW access these days, and my observation is
that bugs sent in by gccbug are oftentimes missing something (but instead
still have the default values of fields in them), so why not deprecate its
use right away.

Major objections?

  To simplify creation of bug reports, and to allow better tracking of
  reports, we use the GNATS bug tracking system.  Part of that system is
! the @command{gccbug} script.  This is a Unix shell script, so you need a
! shell to run it.  It is normally installed in the same directory where
! @command{gcc} is installed.
! 
! The gccbug script is derived from send-pr, @pxref{using
! send-pr,,Creating new Problem Reports,send-pr,Reporting Problems}.  When
! invoked, it starts a text editor so you can fill out the various fields
! of the report.  When the you quit the editor, the report is automatically
! send to the bug reporting address.
! 
! A number of fields in this bug report form are specific to GCC, and are
! explained at @uref{http://gcc.gnu.org/gnats.html}.
