Comment(by randy@…):

 According to the FHS, /usr/share/{man,doc,info} are the correct
 locations. The LFS book creates symlinks (/usr/{man,doc,info}) to
 account for broken packages that try to install in /usr/{man,doc,info}.

 I suggested many months ago to fix the broken packages by using
 mandir, infodir, docdir, but it was determined that it wasn't worth
 the effort because the symlinks are there.

 I suggest this ticket be closed.
