Do the gcc man pages now make it clear that the entire collection of
manuals are the work and say which other man pages contain the Invariant
Sections and the License?

Also, the FDL seems to require the Invariant Sections be included in the
copy (section 4H), not merely in the Document.  What did I miss?

I dislike the FDL because of all these complexities and stange interactions
when an FDL'd manual accompanies GPL'd software.  GPL the manuals!
