You can find them via www.gnu.org, or go straight to the GCC website,
http://gcc.gnu.org/

Works for me, I get a 302 redirect:

GET /software/gcc/onlinedocs/ HTTP/1.1
Host: www.gnu.org

HTTP/1.1 302 Found

Also works for me, although it's very slow to establish a connection today:

GET /onlinedocs/gcc/ HTTP/1.1
Host: gcc.gnu.org

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

If there was a problem it's fixed, but could it be a problem with a
web proxy on your side?
