These paths are *very* Debian-and-derivatives-specific (even leaving
aside the hardcoded /usr/share/doc prefix, the split between groff-base
and groff is a Debianism), so they can't be committed upstream like
that.  Either the local references will need to be omitted, or we'll
need some kind of arrangement along the lines of the existing
@HTMLDOCDIR@ and @PDFDOCDIR@ in groff's man pages (I'm not sure how
practical that is in texinfo).
