He refers to those that are in /usr/share but don't have a link in /usr/doc
pointing to /usr/share/doc, which should be the normal situation.

One question here: bind-doc installs the documentation in
/usr/share/doc/bind, and Debian related docs (changelog.Debian and
copyright) live in /usr/share/doc/bind-doc. This is not correct, isn't it?
Just noticed this afternoon. 

ls'ing /usr/doc gives a big amount of directories that should be links to
