Bad links in docs

If you maintain a document that is distributed on www.debian.org/doc/
then you should check http://people.debian.org/~treacy/urlcheck/doc.en
for any bad links.

You may wonder why directories missing the final / give a (301) Moved
Permanently error. This is because the browser needs to make a second
request with the final slash attached. Help save the bandwidth of the
world by adding these slashes.

Also, in order to save the amount of time it takes to run, the link
checker times out after 15 seconds. Many of the sites listed with
'IOError: gave up on site' are actually ok.
