  Short answer - I don't know, but my understanding is 'yes' -- those are
replicated/updated when you update the git tree. That's the whole purpose behind
the submodule init stuff. Having standardization behind the build mechanics of
every module/app in the TDE project. The /admin and /cmake files would be the
proper place to do all this if the path info can be set there. I know that is
the proper place for the cmake 'tde_setup_paths( )' magic to take place and I
suspect the same can be done for all the autoconf files through
files (or something similar).

  Those are the dimly lit misty places where the likes of the 'White Wizard' and
the creature called 'sameleian' lurk and control the keys to the rest of the
kingdom. I think with a small amount of magic, those two could probably unlock
the secret to getting the doc files in the right place without having to mount a
frontal attack on the individual modules themselves :)

  Looking at the cmake files for tdelibs/tdebase/etc.. the doc paths are not set
in the top-level CMakeLists.txt file along with the other paths that are
specified. I suspect that is the answer...
