Any opinion on creating in /opt/scidb/18.1 a man page directory?

mkdir -p "$(DESTDIR)$(SCIDB)/man/man1"

One could add on the above webpage an 'export' line in .scidbrc

export MANPATH="$MANPATH:/opt/scidb/18.1/man"

or author for /etc/profile.d executable scidb.csh and files.

There is a section on the above webpage about compressing man pages.

Incidentally I noticed from the extracted scidb-18.1-utils-11-1.x86_64.rpm that the binaries with the exception of indexmapper are stripped, whether that was intentional or not, the above cited webpage also has a section on stripping binaries and libraries.
