Install gcc272-docs or gcc-2.95-doc or gcc-3.0-doc.  There is a trend to separating
the docs from the programs, it makes sense when the docs get large.

They weren't that hard to find.  Try using dselect or aptitude and searching
for gcc.  Many extra goodies there.

When you package them :)  There is a tradition in community projects that whinging
about the lack of something volunteers you to fix the problem.  It tends to
cut down on posts like yours.

Congratulations, you are the new maintainer for KDE-3.  Hurry up will you, I
want to try it out too :)
