Got some extra space in here and elsewhere in the manpage. I don't see
why, but I'm also not familiar with the manpage tools.

I'd like to suggest we start using capitalization for the LinuxDoc domain,
e.g. http://www.LinuxDoc.org/ or <ldp-announce@lists.LinuxDoc.org>. Just
my personal preference. I think it looks better.

This works great.

I think I missed out on part of the discussion, but is there a reason this
points to /usr/doc/LDP instead of /usr/doc/HOWTO? If it's about HOWTOs I'd
think it should point at the latter especially since the latter exists :).
