Patch to make old install manual a chapter of the new

This patch moves the old install manual from the main GCC manual to
being a chapter of the new install manual.  (The new install manual
isn't a particularly good place either, but I want to get it out of
the main manual so I can split that into user and internals manuals
before the feature freeze, then rework the structure of the internals
manual and put appropriate section headings and empty sections there
for people hopefully to fill in with more information over the next
two months, cf the suggestion at that having
the outline present would make people fill it in.  This logical
structure has three manuals (user, install, internals) by audience and
the old install docs certainly don't belong somewhere other than the
install manual.  Nor have volunteers dealt with merging the residual
parts of the old install manual into the new.)

It passes makeinfo, texi2dvi and install.texi2html.  OK to commit to
