No, it's documentatiom from the TeX file, should go to texmf/doc/dvips/.
Since we have afm2tfm.html, doc/manpages/afm2tfm.dvi can be removed.
Just for cleaning up the tree. ;-)

c:/TeX would be better as default, I think.
And many users will install
on the another disk.
We have still problems with variables TEXMFCNF and VARTEXMF
(as seen from the point of view of BLU and documenting it)
If you like, it should be TEXMFCNF=%TEXLIVE%/texmf.local/web2c
or (better) VARTEXMF=%TEXLIVE%/texmf.local

And also texmf.cnf. But please be carefully $TEXMFLOCAL

What about windvi.cnf? Where it will be placed/searched?
Since I have HOME, the actual windvi uses it. But most win9x users
ignore it. By the way, windvi
works quite fine with GS 6.0. Thanks.
I found that some of binaries (as well as docs) are missing in
fptex-0.4alpha3, e.g. tex4ht
look at the doc/html/manpages/cont-en.html
All are pdftex, pdflatex manpages.
