But we can make symlinks from /usr/share/doc  to /usr/doc  and
                              /usr/share/man  to /usr/man  and
			      /usr/share/info to /usr/info for the first time
until  all  info-, man- and doc-programs check both paths.

We must make slink compatible with hamm in the large way.
