Update installation caveat text

On OSX this would be done via `export PYTHONPATH=/Applications/MantidPlot.app/Contents/MacOS`, or on linux via `export PYTHONPATH=/opt/Mantid/bin`. After doing this, recheck that the mantid modules are in the python path via `/usr/bin/python -c "import mantid"``, which should produce no error.
### Astropy caveat and versioning
Astropy, the up-to-date pacakge for loading fits files, [does not install cleanly](http://docs.astropy.org/en/stable/install.html) via pip without a c++ compiler. While we work around this issue, the default will be to install `v0.1.0` (see tags) of the WFM stitching package, which depends on the deprecated [pyfits](https://pythonhosted.org/pyfits/) package. Note that you will see this warning at present.
```PyFITS is deprecated, please use astropy.io.fits PyFITSDeprecationWarning)```
If you want to use astropy, instead and have a suitable environement to support it, you can install it by using `v0.1.2` of this package, which you can pass as a command line argument (`-v`) to the installation script.
