There may be an easier way, but if nothing else, you could download
the HTML.tar.gz file for the library docs and then use latex2html to
generate TeX to generate a PDF. (Personally I wouldn't find it at all
useful to have a printed copy of the library docs, even though I do
like printed manuals, because I only ever consult them to look up a
specific function or type, which is a lot easier to do in the
hypertext version -- but YMMV.)
