I was not testing that particular version yet, but your mail reminded me
I wanted to write because of an issue I had with mandir while trying to
package gmx for Debian:

# automake has started to put the man pages under share, and says it
# should be so according to FHS, but this is still debated so we keep
# the old setup unless the user says different.

 a) I didn't know it was debated, can somebody point me to the

if test "$mandir" = "\${prefix}/share/man"; then

  b) I'm no pro in configure stuff, but I tried with
     --mandir=${prefix}/share/man, and the manpages got installed in
     /usr/man, not /usr/share/man. Not sure how one could tell the
     default from not specifying anything, but the build-system I'm
     using sets all those dirs to locations mandated by debian-policy
