Bug#398922: advi: Installs arch-independent files in /usr/lib

Package: advi
Version: 1.6.0-10
Severity: serious
Justification: FHS violation

According to the Debian Policy as well as the etch release policy (5 c
in the latter document), packages are RC if they do not follow the FHS.

advi installs architecture-independent TeX input files in
/usr/lib/advi.  The proper location would be /usr/share/texmf/tex/advi,
which currently is a symlink to the dir in /usr/lib.

I'm currently preparing a patch.

Regards, Frank
