Removed x86 ABI, added CLFS_CPU variable

Removed the x86 ABI page from being rendered in the book as it isn't
needed. We weren't actually pick an ABI for x86, we were picking if
we wanted 32 or 64 bit versions of x86. This would be better handled
if we were to pick which CPU architecture GCC should be compiled for
and then have a GCC that only outputs code for said 32 or 64 bit CPU.

Added the CLFS_CPU variable so that CPU architectures can be picked
from the list at:
We'll eventually use this CLFS_CPU choice with GCC's --with-arch=
configure line to generate a GCC just for our CPU.

16  set a few variables that will be dependent on your particular needs.
17  You will need to set the target triplet for the target architecture, the CPU
18  type, and CPU endianess. If you do not know what triplet or CPU type you want,
19  you can use the table at the bottom of this page as a reference. Set
20  the command using the method listed below:</para>
