  While debugging an issue Jonathan reported I noticed we still have
those references to way old versions of GNU/Linux and Windows from
the early days of Itanium, which really do not add value - now gone

	* doc/install.texi (Specific): Remove obsolete details
	around GNU/Linux on Itanium.
	(Specific): Remove reference to Windows for Itanium.
