By the way, is there any hope of getting rid of /usr/doc when sarge
releases? Extrapolating from my my woody installation, it seems that
all (?) woody packages have maintainer scripts that behave well if
/usr/doc disappears, so something like
if [ -d /usr/doc ] && ! ls -Ul /usr/doc | grep -q '^[^lt]'
echo Removing obsolete /usr/doc directory
rm -f /usr/doc/* && rmdir /usr/doc
in base-files.postinst ought to get rid of /usr/doc now for most users.
