Re: [Patch] Remove gccbug from bugreport.texi, take 2

My thinking was to directly link to the bug reporting page, rather than to 
an intermediate one. Nevermind, I don't think that's so important. Below 
is take 2, even shorter.

  @cindex gccbug script
  
  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}.

  @cindex gccbug script
  
  To simplify creation of bug reports, and to allow better tracking of
! reports, we use a web-based bug tracking system.  Historically, the
! @command{gccbug} script has been recommended as a way to send in bug
! reports, but we now prefer that people submit problem reports online
! following the instructions at @uref{http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html}.
