iproute2-3.3.0 build log

The iproute-3.3.0 installation puts a group of files under /usr/share/doc:
api-ip6-flowlabels.tex.bz2, arpd.sgml.bz2, ip-cref.tex.bz2, ip-tunnels.tex.bz2,
nstat.sgml.bz2, preamble.tex.bz2, rtstat.sgml.bz2, SNAPSHOT.tex.bz2 and ss.sgml.bz2.  There isn't much point to any of these files, but the postscript files
that they can be used to produce,,,,,, rtstat.psa and are old but useful.

It would be helpful if the useless tex and sgml files were dropped from the
build, and the ebuild, with a doc flag, built and installed the postscript
files.  (A doc flag is needed because of the dependency on linuxdoc-tools,
which contains the necessary .sty files.)

ideally we'd generate the pdf/html and install those, but i don't care enough to look into adding the right dependencies to make that happen.  feel free to post a patch if you want to actually read these docs.

should be all set now in the tree; thanks for the report!

Commit message: Do not bother installing sgml/tex source files as docs
