Probably for Armin, but I am thankful to any replies.

I have noticed some modifications in the "Introduction to Xorg-7.7" page,

sed 's@/usr/X11R6@<PREFIX>@g' -i /etc/man_db.conf

In my host "LFS7.1", I have not done that, there is the symlink

/usr/X11R6 -> /usr

and just in case, I have added

/usr/X11 -> /usr

Now in the new "LFS7.2",

# grep X11 /etc/man_db.conf
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/X11R6/bin          /usr/X11R6/man
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/bin/X11            /usr/X11R6/man
MANDB_MAP       /usr/X11R6/man          /var/cache/man/X11R6

I used that sed, however:

# grep X11 /etc/man_db.conf
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/bin/X11            <PREFIX>/man
MANDB_MAP       <PREFIX>/man            /var/cache/man/X11R6

1. Is it correct having <PREFIX>/man?

2. Should not /var/cache/man/X11R6 be replaced too, perhaps by
/var/cache/man/X11 (s@/var/cache/man/X11R6@/var/cache/man/X11@g)?

The second question is not so important, I believe, but it seems
necessary, just for consistency reason (not using X11R6, but X11).
