Hi could you please review this patch ?
Basically it binds $docdir option to HELPDIR macro and switch from $(prefix)/share/doc/${PACKAGE} path to $docdir.
---
suse use for docs : $(prefix)/share/doc/pacakges/${PACKAGE} and this patch solve this specific path
also I think this helps to solve fedora's problem with doc ( they use $(prefix)/share/doc/${PACKAGE}-{version} )
---
so after applying this patch you could use ./confgiure --docdir=/your_specific_patch/{packagename} to : define install docdir and set propper HELPDIR macro

    Ok ..

    I made something that I think will help .... but .. read the PACKAGERS.README in the git repository ... sure is not the GNU way and not so elegant .... but .. I dont have time to learn all of this.
