More on this:

I did a source install to see if I could figure out which step
installed the docs, and I found this in src/README:

4. [Optional] Run `help-desk' to install missing documentation.

    The source distribution (or Subversion-based source) includes only
    the release notes, and not the rest of the core documentation.
    Run the newly installed `help-desk' and follow the "Manuals" link
    to install the rest of the documentation. For a Subversion-based
    build, the "Manuals" page includes a link to update previously
    installed documentation.

Since gentoo works directly with the sources, there is no way for it
to do this at install time. Is there any way to automate this, so it
can be added to the ebuild as a use flag?
