Hi Russ,

Debian doesn't.

My mistake here - sometimes I leap before I look. It appears that some RPM-based distros use /usr/share/doc/${PACKAGE} and some use /usr/share/doc/${PACKAGE}-${VERSION}. Opensuse uses /usr/share/doc/packages/${PACKAGE}, but since I've started researching, I've not found any references to other Linux distros that use this.

Sorry for the confusion...
