Only print the edition number of the manuals in the TeX version

Frankly, I think the edition conveys little to no information.
The version number of Emacs is much more relevant.
No-one seems to know what the rules are for updating the edition anyway...

* doc/emacs/emacs.texi (@copying): Only print EDITION in the TeX version.

* doc/lispref/elisp.texi (@copying):
* doc/lispref/intro.texi (Introduction): Only print VERSION in the TeX version.

* search.texi (Regexp Search): Just say "Emacs".

@c I don't really know what it means...
@c For example, it has said "Sixteenth" since sometime in the Emacs 22
@c series, all through 23, and into 24. So it is not very useful IMO,
@c and offers nothing that EMACSVER does not. I guess it relates
@c mainly to the published book sold by the FSF. Hence no longer
@c bother including it except iftex. Really, I think it should not be
@c here at all (since anyone can make a pdf version), but should just
@c be something added by the FSF during the publishing process.
@c Also, the lispref uses a float (3.0), whereas this uses an ordinal,
@c so the format is not even consistent.
