BLFS 8.1: OpenSP places man pages in usr/man


BLFS 8.1

So in setting up a destdir install script based on the book's directions, I discovered that make install for the OpenSP package places the man pages like this:
Code:
usr/man/man1/onsgmls.1
usr/man/man1/osgmlnorm.1
usr/man/man1/ospam.1
usr/man/man1/ospcat.1
usr/man/man1/ospent.1
usr/man/man1/osx.1
Has anyone else noticed this?

I added the following parameter to my ./configure line:
Code:
--mandir=/usr/share/man
and that seems to have worked to place them where the book expects them.

a number of older progs place the manpages in /usr/man instead of /usr/share/man, for a number of years now i have just symlinked the two together its easier
