I meant move /usr/share/pkg to the data package, do not rename it.

Daniel Burrows told me about 8)
8) Do not make /usr/share/doc/pkg-data a symlink to /usr/share/doc/pkg,
because this would force the dependency pkg-data-->pkg
Instead you can either move the content of /usr/share/doc/pkg to
/usr/share/doc/pkg-data and make /usr/share/doc/pkg a symlink to
or you can make /usr/share/doc/pkg-data a copy of /usr/share/doc/pkg.
