It's in the .deb file and works for me.
femto[~/emacs/deb]$ dpkg -c emacs-19.30-1.deb | grep jka.compr

emacs.1 and [ce]tags.1 are installed in /usr/man. The rest of the
documentation goes into /etc for historical reasons. A symbolic link
from /usr/doc/emacs to /usr/lib/emacs/19.30/etc is reasonable. Anyone
have any problems with that?
When creating the package, I kept everything in the same location as it
was for 19.29-11. After 11 versions, I assumed everybody was happy
with the files' locations.
