Re: (ITS#3904) Man page symbolic links to installation directory

In the Makefile generated for each of the man subdirectories, the
following lines are near the bottom.

    if test -f "$(srcdir)/$$page.links" ; then \
        for link in `$(CAT) $(srcdir)/$$page.links`; do \
            echo "installing $(MANDIR)/$$link as link to $$page"; \
            $(RM) $(DESTDIR)$(MANDIR)/$$link ; \
            $(LN_S) $$page $(DESTDIR)$(MANDIR)/$$link; \

The last line is missing a directory reference and should be
            $(LN_S) $(DESTDIR)$(MANDIR)/$$page $(DESTDIR)$(MANDIR)/$$link; \
