I update my local FBSD documentation with cvsup doc-all.
I note that the latest FBSD documentation is under /usr/doc.
However I still have /usr/share/doc which is about 2 years out of date.

On the other hand /usr/doc does not appear in hier(7),
whereas /usr/share/doc does.

Can I safely delete the obsolete docs under /usr/share/doc?
Why are there two doc folders?

many thanks
