Hi Thomas,
sorry being away so long due to the Christmas break.

May bad assumption of being a typo was based on a coincidence combining

a) former packaging in ubuntu had it in fact under /usr/share/doc/dpdk (I
agree that just /usr/share/dpdk would be better)
b) if you just and only ran a build and install-doc (no other install
targets); the install failes just by missing the datadir

That lead me to the wrong assumption it might be in  /usr/share/doc/dpdk

But you are right, lets fix b) instead which is just a mkdir -p in the
Alternative patch will follow.
