[dev] [wmii] hg2540 fails on make install using DESTDIR

I build wmii on Arch using the PKGBUILD from AUR.
make finishes fine, but make DESTDIR=${pkgdir} install fails:

/bin/sh: line 1: /home/dahms/packages/wmii-hg/pkg/usr/share/doc/wmii/README: No such file or directory
make: *** [simpleinstall] Error 1

Doing it once again gives the same error for /home/dahms/packages/wmii-hg/pkg/usr/share/man/wmii.1

Note that ${pkgdir} is /home/dahms/packages/wmii-hg/pkg/ here. After some testing outside the PKGBUILD, DESTDIR is the thing to blame. Installing without a DESTDIR is fine.
