Hi all,

According the the perl configure.gnu script the man pages are installed 
in /tools:

<SNIP>

Build a shared libperl.so (y/n) [n]
System manual is in /usr/share/man/man1.
Where do the main Perl5 manual pages (source) go? (~name ok)
[/tools/share/man/man1]
What suffix should be used for the main Perl5 man pages? [1]
You can have filenames longer than 14 characters.
Where do the perl5 library man pages (source) go? (~name ok)
[/tools/share/man/man3]
What suffix should be used for the perl5 library man pages? [3]
Figuring out host name...

<SNIP>

Pathname where the site-specific library html pages should be installed? 
(~name ok)
[none]
Pathname where the site-specific manual pages should be installed? 
(~name ok)
[/tools/share/man/man1]
Pathname where the site-specific library manual pages should be 
installed? (~name ok)
[/tools/share/man/man3]
Pathname where add-on public executable scripts should be installed? 
(~name ok)
[/usr/bin]

<SNIP>

Their is no parameter that can be passed to configure.gnu to change 
this, so I guess 'Configure' will have to patched.
