Broken vim man pages in potato



Title: Message
Did a apt-get install of vim on a minimum install of potato 2.2r5, then used update-alternatives --config vi and selected vim.  Now when I do a 'man vi' I get:
 
man: warning: /usr/share/man/man1/vi.1.gz is a dangling symlink
 
'man vim' works just fine.  I checked and the manual pages for vim are in /usr/man/man1, not /usr/share/man/man1, so it looks like when vim registered with update-alternatives it apparently gave the wrong slave link:
 
# update-alternatives --display vi
vi - status is manual
 link currently points to /usr/bin/vim
/usr/bin/vim - priority 20
 slave vi.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/vim.1.gz
 
Who would I talk to about getting this fixed?
 
-Mike
