When I try to force the relocation of some package directories with
--badreloc together with --relocate <orig>=<new> it refuses to install the

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "rpm -Uvh --badreloc --relocate /usr/doc=/usr/share/doc somepackage.rpm"
where somepackage.rpm has files/directories in /usr/doc	

Actual Results:  rpm said that /usr/sharedoc conflicted with some other
package(s) already installed.

Expected Results:  It should of put the files that sould be put in
/usr/doc, in /usr/share/doc
