INSTALL: make clear not to install libmypaint from master.

Also add a note about installing possibly from the release tarball or
from the package manager of a distribution, since apparently some assume
it has to be installed from repository, making their own life harder
that it has to!
Finally split the libmypaint and mypaint-brushes into their own numbers
to make things even clearer.
