I think this should go to ‘core-updates’.

More precisely, building man pages for ‘gcc-boot0’ is pointless and
possibly adds Perl on the graph for no good reason.  So if we can
arrange to just have man pages in ‘gcc-final’, we’re good.

Efraim, could you check whether that works for ‘core-updates’?
