 In the MPFR instructions, after installing, LFS says to create
 /usr/share/doc/mpfr-[version] and copy some files there. However, MPFR
 itself creates a docdir, which by default is /usr/share/doc/mpfr, and puts
 a few things in there. This can be fixed by adding
 --docdir=/usr/share/doc/mpfr-&mpfr-version; to configure, and of course
 removing the now-redundant command to create that directory.

 Also, since the MPFR install already copies FAQ.html, the command to copy
 the docs (currently a find command) could be simplified to "cp -v
 mpfr.html/*.html /usr/share/doc/mpfr-&mpfr-version;"
