[rfa] doc/gdbint.texinfo: update commands for release tarball

This patch updates gdbint.texinfo with the new instructions for making
a release tarball.

Note that more people than the release manager need this information.
I wrote this patch because I needed to know how snapshot tarballs were
made in order to debug a problem with testsuite/gdb.c++ files inside
the current snapshots.

Testing: I followed the instructions on a fresh tree and I got some nice
looking tarballs.

OK to apply?
