FreeBSD7 -Mistake on package oss-freebsd7-v4.0-1011-i386.tbz

Hi,
thanks for your work on FreeBSD7 and making a usefull and easy installation package for OSS. No licence msg at boot time, great thanks !

There's a mistake on the package above : 'Man pages' must be installed on /usr/share/man, not on /usr/man that is not a valid manpath nor a valid directory on FreeBSD.
You can leave your man pages on lib/oss too, but must setting up /etc/manpath.config to take effect.
If you would respect FreeBSD design, all OSS stuff must be installed on /usr/local, (/usr/local/lib, /usr/local/man, ...) but no problem.

I can send you a patch to correct that if you want.

Merry Christmas and happy new year to all,

Aha that's the reason man sblive doesn't show up. OK that will be fixed.
As far as other path names for OSS - we need some kind of installation option that will allow people to install in any directory given on the pkg_add line.
