- the man pages (all except gfortran.1) are not built from
source. -> RC
- the gfdl is not included in the man pages, nor the gfdl(7) man
pages are shipped, violating the GFDL (dropping invariant
sections). -> RC
- the java man pages are not built
- the libstdc++ docs are not built
- the man pages are not up to date. you have to apply the patches
from our sources.
for an alternative approach (somebody did volunteer to do that, but I
never heard again from this developer):
- put the doc files from
in a source tarball.
- build-depend on gcc-4.1-source (including the -doc patches),
build the package (bootstrap_target=all), then just package
