PATCH: delete gcc/config.guess

There is a dummy config.guess in the gcc directory.  I'm pretty sure that
autoconf already takes care of finding the proper config.guess

This version was put in '97 by Jim Wilson. From what I can tell from ChangeLogs,
this was about the same time the $ac_config_{guess,sub} autoconf test were added
to what became v2.12.1. Since GCC requires v2.13, the dummy file seems to be just
cruft now.

I deleted it and performed the following tests:

Bootstrapped i686-pc-cygwin normally
Bootstrapped host=pentium4-pc-cygwin (with patched toplevel config.guess)
configure;make all from the gcc directory
configure --host=pentium4-pc-cygwin;make from the gcc directory

All versions work correctly. I do not have CVSwrite access.
