Re: install.texi: Remove target-specific info for removed targets

I do not expect to be in a position to do anything on this for some
months.  What I want to avoid is the situation with the previous target
removals, where various documentation and comments sat around for months,
and when Larin Hennessy did patches to remove this obsolete documentation
and comments, etc., it took a long time for them to get reviewed, and some
of the work then got duplicated while waiting
<http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2002-12/msg01015.html>.  That is,
removal of references elsewhere in GCC is an integral part of removing
support for a target as much as adding the necessary documentation is an
integral part of adding a target.
