OK to commit the following patch to update htdocs for this?

The redirect is because there are various links to the g77 bugs and news
pages from past release notes, and just having a single redirect to change
for these when new 3.4.x releases come out seems best.  When 3.4 branch is
dead the links can always be made to point directly to the last versions
of these files.

update_web_docs deliberately not changed; old manuals stay listed there so
it can still generate onlinedocs for 3.3/3.4 releases.  (The checklist in
sourcebuild.texi can be used for removing releases as well as for adding
them, but more care is needed because of things like this and details of
contributors that shouldn't be removed - and in this case some references
to Fortran stay because they can apply to gfortran now, rather than going

Arguably the reference to f in

	-rmdir ada cp f java objc fixinc intl po testsuite 2>/dev/null

(gcc/ should go away - but this line isn't
documented in the checklist in sourcebuild.texi since it's completely
optional, and it might be better just to remove this line entirely, as
there is little use for make distclean when you can simply remove the
build directory (and this line has no function when building in srcdir).
