[Exherbo-dev] econf --docdir and --hates

econf now passes --docdir=/usr/share/doc/${PNVR} to configure scripts by 
default. Some packages bail on that.
For this reason econf now also supports --hates=arg to disable any 
--arg=* configure standard argument. Packages
in system already use --hates where needed.

So if you see a package that bails with:

configure: error: unrecognized option: --docdir=/usr/share/doc/${PNVR}

you need to pass --hates=docdir to econf in that package.
