some problems:

 - 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
   the documentation.
