[PATCH 1/6] Mention that "=" in SEARCH_DIR is controlled by --sysroot

Not really part of the sysroot-prefix changes as such, but
spotted while updating the documentation for the *new*
semantics.  Reading the text before this patch gives the
impression that the "="-replacement is just a configure-time
choice for the "=" in SEARCH_DIR("=/file/path").  This is
borderline obvious.

	* ld.texinfo (Options): When mentioning "=" and sysroot, mention
	that --sysroot controls it, not only through the configuration.
