Should /usr/lib/rpm/macros now be setting:

  %{_mandir}=%{_datadir}/man

instead of:

  %{_mandir}=%{_prefix}/man

?

Isn't that the "new" preferred place for that sort of stuff?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. vim /usr/lib/rpm/macros
2.
3.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-04-14 15:34:46 EDT
The macro %_mandir is set to that already
	bash$ rpm --showrc | grep " _mandir" 
	-14: _mandir	/usr/share/man
See /usr/lib/rpm/*/macros for where.
