Umpf, sorry to bugger you that often:

Hopefully all the directories are `separate' in the sense that no two
packages install files (not directories) into the same directory.

So we have
. /usr/share/doc/pkgname/...		
	contains the actual files
. /usr/share/doc/texmf/
	contains some directories and some symlinks to directories in
	/usr/share/doc/pkgname (as I said, hope this works, will
	implement it now and see ;-)
. /usr/share/texmf/doc -> ../doc/texmf

Is it the way it should be?

Best wishes
