Issue: doc/ja/cd-paranoia.1 is not rendering correctly.

libcdio-paranoia 10.2+2.0.1
OS: Linux
man-db: 2.9.0

man(1) encoding conversion is dependent upon the file's path.

The build system is installing it in the wrong subdirectory:



Then man(1) will render it correctly.

The source tree correctly uses 'ja':

That location is part of the FHS[1] and man-db[2] specifications.

Other optional mitigation steps:
If this line is added to the top of the man page:

  '\" -*- coding: EUC-JP -*-

it will render properly regardless of path.

Or if the man page is converted to utf-8 it will
also render properly regardless of path:

cat cd-paranoia.1 | iconv -f eucjp -t utf8 > utf-cd-paranoia.1

It is recommended by man-db that man pages be utf-8 encoded.

[1] 4.11.6. /usr/share/man : Manual pages:

[2] "NLS manual pages"
