Bug#388246: gcc-4.1.1 manual pages are now missing!

Package: gcc
Version: 4.1.1-13 (gcc version 4.1.2)

I was about to report the dangling symlinks in the gcc man directory
/usr/share/man/man1/i486-linux-gnu-cpp.1.gz -> cpp-4.1.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/cpp.1.gz -> cpp-4.1.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/c++.1.gz -> /etc/alternatives/c++.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/gcov.1.gz -> gcov-4.1.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/cc.1.gz -> /etc/alternatives/cc.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/i486-linux-gnu-gcc.1.gz -> gcc-4.1.1.gz

but by upgrading gcc, I see that they have been "fixed" (bug #384923:
Dangling slave link to cc.1.gz) not by installing the referenced man
pages, but by removing the symlinks.

Now gcc, g++, cpp, gcov, cc do not have manual pages at all.

$ man cc
No manual entry for cc.

I am running Debian unstable (etch) on i686.
