One thing to note about /usr/share/doc is that files under there are
automatically marked as %doc.  Programs can't have a runtime dependency on
those because someone could install with --nodoc to omit those files.  So
with the devhelp index -- if devhelp can tell that the documentation doesn't
exist and then doesn't show the index entry, you're fine.  If devhelp shows
an entry for the documentation but yields an error when someone tries to use
it, it's probably better not to use /usr/share/doc or otherwise mark the
files as %doc.
