Package: fortune-mod
Version: 1:1.99.1-3
Severity: minor

Quoting fortune(6):

       Note: these are the defaults as defined at compile time.

              Directory for innoffensive fortunes.
              Directory for offensive fortunes.

The paths listed are obviously not the ones where the data files live on my machine.
My complaint is minor though, since it doesn't take a genius to realise that the
actual path is /usr/share/games/fortunes/ ...

By the way, using strace I see that it also searches /usr/local/share/games/fortunes/
in some way. That should be documented, IMHO -- it might be an elegant way to add your own files.

This has been fixed already: current manpage shows the right paths.
