Manpages licensed under GFDL without the license text included

Looking into sarge I found a number of manpages, that do not look
redistributeable as they are licensed under the G"F"DL but do not
include the full licence text needed to be distributeable. Especially 
Debian-specific ones seem to be affected due to some templates debhelper
contained in the past.

Unless someone disagrees, I'll file bugreports against those packages.
("Missing permissions to be distributeable" is serious even pre-sarge,
 isn't it?)

I) Debian-specific manpages

Some packages are listed twice, one time under the author listed in the manpage
(as those are the ones that might be able to easily give additional permission
under something sane like GPL) and one time under the current maintainer of 
the package. Sorted by email-address.
(note, some contain a copyright notice not visible using man, try zless instead)

II) non-Debian-specific manpages
The following manpages not containing the GFDL text look not Debian-specific, so
resolving this could be more complicated (or might make it necessary to include
the whole GFDL-text within the manpage).
