I didn't know that this page even existed.  Searching
/sourceware/infra/bin, I see a script called htupdate-gcc which
references search.html.  I don't know if that is what is responsible for
this page or not.  It looks like it was created, or at least maintained
by, Hans-Peter Nilsson (hp).

Looking in /sourceware/htdig, I was reminded that we moved away from htdig
to mnogosearch.  I see a file there dated March 21 2013 so maybe that's
when search.html stopped being updated.

So, it looks like if you want to keep that page active you're going to have
to figure how to plug into mnogosearch.
