AFAIR /usr/etc, /usr/man and /usr/info have gone even as symlinks

Very little uses /usr/etc these days, and most of that can be fixed
by configuring --libdir=/etc on the most stubborn packages.

The easy way fo /usr/man and /usr/info is to use links, then
take the links away after installation. You must also fix

I have done it the difficult way. Is anyone interested in the
required settings?
