page show that log variable is dynamic, and in fact it is not, it is dynamic only in 5.1 branch, not in 5.0

How to repeat:
mysql> set global log='/tmp/log.log';
ERROR 1238 (HY000): Variable 'log' is a read only variable

Suggested fix:
change to documentation - variable LOG is not dynamic

This is now shown as dynamic in the 5.0 version of the Manual.

This problem (along with several other like it) was due to incorrect parsing by the docs build system of dynamic-docs/command-optvars/mysqld.xml, which contained the correct info. Parser was recently fixed, so no new action required.
