Do not hardcode platform names in manual/libm-err-tab.pl

As I noted in <http://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2012-02/msg00196.html>, manual/libm-err-tab.pl hardcodes a list of names for particular platforms. Instead, each libm-test-ulps file should have some header line giving the name to be used in the manual, libm-err-tab.pl should extract the names from those lines and those lines should be preserved by gen-libm-test.pl when used to update ULPs files.
Joseph, with the limited number of platforms: Do you really think this is a problem? I would leave it - and add new architectures to it...
Although it was more of a problem when the ports repository was separate,
I think it's still better design for this information to go in sysdeps
directories rather than hardcoded for all platforms in one place.
