That's likely the manual RMS kept asking folks (semi-privately) to

I don't see that manual as part of the GCC project and I certainly would
understand a disinterest in reviewing/rewriting C language manuals and
More language and related standards under free licenses could be a
worthwhile goal, though. I have no idea how tiresome this would be, and
home much ideological objections to free licenses remain.
(I once tried to learn C from GCC Texinfo printouts, and it took me a
while to figure out that GCC did not come with documentation for the
languages it implemented.)
