Actually, ever package that has GFDL covered docs contains a copy of the
GFDL, but only in a plain text file named COPYING-DOCS. The actual
documentation generally links to the provided DocBook copy of the GFDL,
and mentions that you received a copy of the GFDL in plain text format,
in the file named COPYING-DOCS. I'm pretty sure that this covers the
requirements of the GFDL.
