    doc/fdl.texi is removed below

If I'm understanding correctly, removing fdl.texi seems wrong to me.
I'm supposing it's created dynamically from a copy in gnulib or
somewhere now?  But the license can't be updated merely by changing that
file.  The @copying block has to be updated also.  In fact, the @copying
block now says 1.2, but (I'm guessing) fdl.texi v1.3 is what gets pulled in.

I think the right outcome is:
1) change 1.2 to 1.3 in @copying in inetutils.texi.

2) keep a copy of fdl[-1.3].texi in the repo.

3) in the event that the fdl is updated, both things need to be updated.
   I don't know of any plausible way to automate it, and updates are so
   infrequent, it doesn't seem worth the effort.

If I'm missing some sophisticated arrangement which keeps things in
sync, just ignore me, and sorry for the noise.
