Best place for .3 MPI man pages


For years now, there has been a conflict between mpi-doc and lam4-dev
because they both provide .3 MPI API man pages, such as
MPI_Comm_set_name.3.gz .

It's silly that the -dev package conflicts with a corresponding -doc
package, as was pointed out by Fabrice Lorrain in bug 310688.

So the question is: where is the proper place for these files, mpi-doc
or lam4-dev?  It seems like if they're in mpi-doc, there's less
duplication; if in lam4-dev they'd need to be repeated in all of the
libmpich*-dev packages.
