[wwwdocs] provide version-independent URL for our web documentation

In Bugzilla #33057 Karl Berry asked for a version-independent URL for our
web documentation of the release with the highest version number.

I was a bit sceptical at first, but indeed the only stable URL we have 
been offering so far that does not refer to a specific version was that
of our development trunk, not any released version.

This patch address this by adding http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/ref which
(temporarily) redirects to our GCC 4.2.1 documentation.  This is going to
be a bit of extra work for releases from the latest branch, but it's not
much and does help provide cross references for GNU documentation.
