Bug#456266: gij-4.2: non-free man pages included

Package: gij-4.2
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 2.2.1

The man pages gcj-dbtool-4.2.1 and gij-4.2.1 are both licensed under the GNU Fre
Documentation License with front- and back-cover texts. According to Debian vote
1 of 2006 this is a violation of the DFSG modifiability requirements.

Both man pages are fairly short so it shouldn't be too much work writing fresh
ones to comply with the DFSG. As I primarily use C++/C I'm probably not the best
person for the job. I would however be willing to have a go at it, if so

Other non-free man pages in packages related to the GNU Compiler Collection:
  * cpp-4.2 (bug #456262)
  * gcc-4.2 (bug #442445)
  * gcj     (bug #456264)
  * gij-4.2 (bug #456265)

Note: In response to bug #442445 Matthias Klose said that the problem won't
      be fixed (for gcc) until the 4.2.3 and 4.3.0 releases.
