Update of /cvsroot/sbcl/sbcl

126.96.36.199: more README touchups
* Texinfo, not DocBook since late 2004. :) We're fast on things
* HTML available for download, not part of the normal binary
* Mention BUGS.
* PURIFY doesn't happen on x86 Darwins, and I've never had to touch
the limits on PPC either -- so delete that bit.

- PURIFY (which can be used alone but is also used by the system when
- saving a new core) uses more stack than the default limit on MacOS
- X.2. Therefore, in order to get PURIFY to work reliably, you need
- to increase the limit, with e.g.
- limit stack 8192 # for the default shell, tcsh
- ulimit -s 8192 # for bash
- before running SBCL. This is also necessary when building the system
- from sources, as part of the build process involves saving a new core.
