# update-alternatives --display javac
javac - status is auto.
 link currently points to /usr/lib/j2sdk1.3/bin/javac
/usr/lib/j2sdk1.3/bin/javac - priority 1310
 slave javac.ja.1.gz: /usr/share/man/ja/man1/javac.j2sdk13.1.gz
 slave javac.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/javac.j2sdk13.1.gz
/usr/bin/jikes - priority 10
 slave javac.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/jikes.1.gz
Current `best' version is /usr/lib/j2sdk1.3/bin/javac.

The approach I used to fix this was by creating the directory 'ja/man1'
and doing 'touch javac.j2sdk13.1.gz'.  Followed by "update-alternatives
--remove javac /usr/share/man/ja/man1/javac.j2sdk13.1.gz" or something
like that (tried various combinations; not sure exactly what is the
correct path?).  This solved the problem once before and this time, but
every time I update something related to the javac or other java related
man pages, the problem reappears.  Note that doing a "ls -la
/etc/alternatives/*.ja*" reveals a whole bunch of links to non-existent
ja man pages (all related to the j2sdk13 package)...

I would appreciate a tip on how to lose these links permanently; maybe
even if I reinstall the j2sdk13 package.
