I have a recent potato install and dhelp 0.3.14 and _don't_ have 
http://localhost/fhs/ support.

I could see http://localhost/doc/HTML/, but all new docs visible
as file:/usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html could not be seen under
the http://localhost interface to dhelp.  Is `fhs' supposed to be
a new Alias?

Am I doing anything wrong?

[I also agree that it would be annoying to have two distint
 directories to point a browser at (if it worked at all for me).]

Marco, do you have upgrade plans for dhelp?
