Eliminate INSTALL.OSX

This used to be copied into the disk image that we used to distribute
the macOS version of Survex, but is unused now we've switched to using
HomeBrew?.

Relocate the useful information from it into the manual.

     343The easiest way to install a recent release of Survex on macOS is by using
     344the Homebrew package manager. If you don't already use Homebrew, you'll
     345need to install it first.  See the
     346<ulink url="https://survex.com/download.html?platform=macosx">macOS
     347download page on the website</ulink> for installation instructions.

     583<Para>
     584Most common tasks can now be accomplished through Aven - processing survey
     585data, viewing the processed data, printing, exporting to other formats,
     586and producing simple extended elevations.
     587</Para>
     588
     589<Para>
     590A few tasks still require you to use the command line.  And some functionality
     591is available both via aven and from the command line, which allows it to be
     592scripted.

     602    <listitem><Para>
     603        Produces extended elevations - this is probably the most useful of
     604        these command line tools.  Since version 1.2.27 you can produce simple
     605        extended elevations from Aven using the "Extended Elevation" function.
     606        However the command line tool allows you to specify a spec file to
     607        control how the survey is extended, which you can't currently do via
     608        Aven.

     625    <listitem><Para>
     626        Provides access to Aven's "Export" functionality from the command line,
     627        which can be useful in scripts.
     628    </Para></listitem>

     630
     631<VarListEntry><Term>cavern</Term>
     632    <listitem><Para>
     633        Processes survey data, but since version 1.2.3 you can process .svx
     634        files by simply opening them with Aven, so you no longer need to run
     635        cavern from the command line.  The main reason to run cavern directly
     636        is for use in scripts.
