ettercap-ng removes the /opt/local/man directory on uninstall

Reported by: reconbot@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…

Component: ports Version: 1.0

I built and installed ettercap-ng using port. sudo port install ettercap-ng later I wanted to remove it so I ran sudo port uninstall ettercap-ng and then attempted to run man port and man couldn't find a page for it. I checked /opt/local/man and it is now missing. I uninstalled and installed wget which recreated the directory and installed its man page. I installed ettercap-ng which also installed its man page, then I uninstalled ettercap-ng and the man directory was removed again.

Sorry I made a mistake, upon installing wget it failed to create the man directory and if you manually recreate /opt/local/man it will not install its man pages.

Ettercap-ng on the other hand will create the man directory and install its man pages upon reinstall. And Ettercap-ng will remove the entire man directory upon uninstall.
