Package: gcc
Version: 4:4.1.1-6
Severity: normal

Today I got mail from the mandb cron script:

mandb: warning: /usr/share/man/man1/cc.1.gz is a dangling symlink
mandb: warning: /usr/share/man/man1/c++.1.gz is a dangling symlink

This is because the gcc postinst installs the following alternative:

| update-alternatives --quiet \
|     --install /usr/bin/cc cc /usr/bin/gcc 20 \
|     --slave /usr/share/man/man1/cc.1.gz cc.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/gcc.1.gz

But /usr/share/man/man1/gcc.1.gz does not exist.

Note that the g++ package suffers from the same problem.
