need doc section packages at all.
# apt-get remove doc/*
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Note, selecting glibc-doc instead of libc-doc
Note, selecting libpam-doc instead of pam-doc
Note, selecting docbook-to-man instead of docbook-to-man-ans
Note, selecting docbook-xml instead of docbk-xml
Note, selecting xcoral instead of xcoral-doc
Note, selecting nntpcache-dev-doc instead of nntpcache-doc
