manpages and info

Hi,

Another suggestion for a next release:
Be more specific with configure options when
it comes to the documentation. Ie. there are
a lot of packages that install manpages by
default under $(prefix)/man, but actually we
want /usr/share/man (to conform to the FHS).

This means adding more --mandir=/usr/share/man
--infodir=/usr/share/info

Or even:
make -e mandir=/usr/share/man install

(in some cases).


Provide patches (or a nice sed one-liner) to fix
the man paths in the ps* packages.

Sander
