>From my experiences, these docs go usually just into $pkgdocdir, as
unlike info/man there is no implicit directory-search/dirindex-build
by the systemtools. Still, $docdir is missing and desperatly needed - 
some  packagers/distmakers like to have the genericdocs/packagedocs
to live in $prefix/doc (fhs1?), other systems (fhs2?) have them
in $datadir/doc, or even in a Desktop/Documentation-subdir. 
A $docdir should be settable on its own, yes it should...
