I have my pkgsrc patched for maybe a year to honor a PKGMANDIR variable
which I set on some systems to share/man (and defaults to just "man").
Then for GNU_CONFIGURE packages I add:
I have several packages patched to also honor my PKGMANDIR.
I'd like to get this committed all to pkgsrc, but didn't receive much
(any?) feedback when I provided patches and discussion before.
This is similar to the configurable "info" directory (but in some cases is
not as easy).
