docs/Using on MacOS: Document usage with Xcode 4.1

With Xcode 4.1 'gcc' is symlinked llvm-gcc-4.2 which cannot bootstrap
other gccs.
See http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=9571

On my machine the faulty gcc is
gcc version 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2335.15.00)

Document a workaround.
