PORTDOCS strangeness

Hi all,

I'm updating castor to the new version (thanks for the email
Portscout!), and I've decided to add in docs option.

However... when I set PORTDOCS= * as normal, on deinstall it complains
about being unable to remove ${DOCSDIR}, yet it has been deleted.

I've looked in +CONTENTS after installing it, and sure enough there's
a @dirrm share/doc/castor. What 'gotchas' are there with PORTDOCS?

It installs ~70 docfiles, so I was hoping not to have to list it in
pkg-plist, for the sake of space if anything else!
