With your scheme, how should the manual page "" (the manual page for the Solaris run-time linker) be handled? Would it be installed in @mandir@/so/man8/ld.8 by mistake? This is just an example which shows that there may be pre-existing use of the naming pattern.

I would like to have better support for translated manual pages.
In a possible implementation,

   man_MANS = foo.1

would install `foo.1' as address@hidden@/man1/foo.1' and `' as
address@hidden@/de/man1/foo.1'. Would you consider a patch to that effect?

Right now, I use a separate directory and Makefile for each language.
The `' contains, for example

   mandir = @mandir@/de
   man_MANS = foo.1

I find that difficult to maintain. Is there an easier way, which
requires only one Makefile for all languages?
