Well, the man and info pages are always the same (assuming you're
installing the same GCC release targetted differently), so there's
no real problem there. The same seems to be true of libgcj.pc and
mf-runtime.h.

The ffi.h thing really is a bug with consequences: the thing's got
target-dependent contents :/
