`msfdb` does not work. Possible reasons are:

1. non-root users are not permitted to create `/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432`.
1. `documentation/` direction is purged which is required to launch web ui.

Steps to reproduce:

cd /opt/metasploit
./msfdb init
This task depends upon

As of 5.0.73-1 i can confirm msfdb init works but have to call msfconsole first followed by msfdb init

Is it also normal that MSF 5 is trying to write under ~/.msf4/db/ and not ~/.msf5/db/ ?
