[Bug-dejagnu] Error in doc/user.xml makes manual unprocessable

I've just tried to convert current DejaGnu documentation from the git
repository into something printable.  Unfortunately, this was a terrible
endavour (especially compared to the ease of use of TeXinfo ;-), which
seems typical for DocBook/XML-based manuals, and contrary to the claim
on the DejaGnu homepage, the printable docu there is from the 1.4.4
release, not from the repo.

I tried to use either xsltpro to output XML-FO and convert that to PDF
using xep or fop or convert the XML directly with either of them, but
every combination died a terrible death with incomprehensible error
messages.  Only after serious help from a colleague versed in XML
matters could I find what was wrong: in user.xml. there was a table
declared with 3 columns that actually had 5.  After fixing that, at
least I got PDF output.

This is the trivial patch necessary.

I'll probably provide doc (and other) feedback as well, since I plan to
do some testsuite work in GCC.
