Bug#62352: /usr/doc and /usr/share/doc confusion

Package: general
Version: potato

New documentation is being installed in /usr/share/doc (whereas it was 
installed in /usr/doc in the slink release)  

This is fine, except that the default apache config still sets /doc/
URLs to /usr/doc

My system now has documentation in both /usr/doc (from slink) and
/usr/share/doc (from potato) -- sometimes for the same package (e.g.,

The dhelp package indexes all this nicely, but the URLs generated are
not useable by apache.

My solution at present is manually to delete documentation from
/usr/doc that is duplicated in /usr/doc and in /usr/share/doc, rename
stuff in /usr/doc  to /usr/share/doc, and then to symlink
/usr/share/doc to /usr/doc 

But this is UGLY.
