RFC: patch website for git

I thought I'd send out a few preliminary patches for review.  This way
much of the work can be already approved once I do the git conversion.

This patch updates the binutils web site for the change to git.

Note that it presumes the existence of "src.git", which of course does
not exist yet.

Let me know what you think.
