[PATCH] Document PR bootstrap/10805


GCC 3.3 can't bootstrap on some Solaris 2.7 systems with 32-bit/64-bit 
support because of a bug in an Alpha build of the Sun assembler.

Tested with 'make doc'. Ok for mainline and 3.3?

+GCC 3.3 triggers a bug in a 5.0 Alpha build of the assembler, specifically
+the 5.0 Alpha 03/27/98 build, which causes a bootstrap failure when linking
+the 64-bit version of libgcc. A typical error message is:
+ld: fatal: relocation error: R_SPARC_32: file libgcc/sparcv9/_muldi3.o:
+  symbol <unknown>:  offset 0xffffffff7ec133e7 is non-aligned.
+@end smallexample
+This bug has been fixed in the final 5.0 version of the assembler.
