Config.in: use better URL for GNU mirrors
As explained on http://www.gnu.org/prep/ftp.en.html, the network of GNU mirrors provide a generic address, http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/, which automatically redirects to an up-to-date and local mirror. This allows to greatly speed-up downloads, and also reduces the load on the main GNU server.
