Does it also do the right thing with not overwriting files that are already
present? Last I have seen is that it checks for file stamps. If a file in the
man-pages package is newer than the one already in /usr/man, it will
overwrite the file. That's a bad thing in my opinion. What if for some reason
your clock simply isn't set right when you installed the previous packages.
That's why I never trusted the 'real' installation method for that package.
