Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
type "man mzscheme", and notice the lack of a man page, even though one exists at /opt/plt/man/man1/mzscheme.1.gz

add "export MANPATH=$MANPATH/opt/plt/man" to /etc/profile.d/

I think the first few words from the title say enough. I see no reason to have drscheme in /opt.

Attached a new PKGBUILD, drscheme.desktop and drscheme.install. Change summary:

* installs in /usr instead of /opt
* removed drscheme.profile, not necessary anymore
* added drscheme.desktop
* replaced drscheme.install with one that takes care of drscheme.desktop
* cosmetic fixes to the PKGBUILD

Stupid me, attached wrong PKGBUILD/drscheme.desktop, here's the fixed ones.

that pkgbuild works fine for me, thanks. I also noticed that 372 is out.

Poke poke, this would aid us with the "Kill /opt" TODO list on the dev dashboard.

Another month has gone and the package is still out of date... status on this?

Building now!

Great improvement! But still not ok... I just noticed that it doesn't conform the manpage standard, man pages are installed in /usr/man.

Crap, I didn't pay much attention to it. I'll try to rebuild later today.
