Yes, that particular paragraph and the ones preceding it.  Note that
it says that the installation directory name is still used, but
*relative* to the explicit path name.  What I need is for the installation
directory name to still be used, *in addition* to the explicit path name.

Anyway, without looking at the code, anyone reading the docs would assume
that a datadir specification overrides the installation directory.  If that
is not the case, I reckon that it's worth clarifying this part of the manual...

Thanks for your continuing patience...
Best regards,
