[Patch] MIPS:Add a note about recommended binutils version to install.texi

Unfortunately there is no released version of GNU binutils that works 
well with GCC 4.2/4.3.  But since it looks as though a 4.2 release is 
imminent, I think it is a good idea to recommend a binutils CVS snapshot 
made after Nov. 9, 2006.

The assembler bug that was fixed effects jump tables emitted into comdat 
sections.  This is done by the C++ compiler for certain switch 
statements.  I don't know if 4.0/4.1 are affected by this problem as I 
never do testing with those versions.  If they are, we might want to put 
this on those branches as well.

OK to commit to 4.2 and trunk?
