 I don't know if someone really cares about this, but there are packages in
 LFS that still install their man pages into /usr/man, even tough mandir
 has been defined as /usr/share/man in FHS. I know that LFS still makes
 symlinks /usr/man -> /usr/share/man and such, but I think it is time those
 symlinks go away. I found 2 packages which install their man pages into

 bzip2: Following sed fixes that

 sed -i "s@(PREFIX)/man@(PREFIX)/share/man at g" Makefile

 ncurses: Just use --mandir=/usr/share/man

 I'll find some more when I get to them. Don't close this bug untill then.
