Well, it really got into my way for the FreeBSD port (which i finally
upgraded to a CVS-based version yesterday).  Since no other part of
the FreeBSD ports system installs something like
/usr/local/share/doc/${PORTNAME}-${LONG_VERSION_NUMBER}, i don't want
to do it either.  (${SHORT_VERSION_NUMBER} like "3" or "31" would
perhaps be OK.)  Right now, i need a local patch for it but i'd rather
like to avoid that.  I hope nobody would object against the attached
patch.  It leaves the installation directory as it is now by default,
but allows for a ./doconf --disable-versioned-doc override.
