I'm pretty sure most of those links are done that way so they work for the 
copy of the webpages on www.gnu.org (which doesn't include list archives, 
Bugzilla etc., and has the pages at /software/gcc/ rather than at /).

They could be converted to protocol-relative links 
(href="//gcc.gnu.org/FOO") - that's what Wikipedia does for links that 
should go to http or https according to how the page with the link is 
being accessed - or simply all be changed to https (I don't think browsers 
should object to https content such as stylesheets referenced by an http 
page, only the other way round).
