I will take a look at that, but note that the 
	context-doc-nonfree
packages has NOT been updated in a while, so it probably is in a bad
state wrt organization. Next upload will ship pdf uncompressed, and
hopefully fix these issues.

Can you propose/list a better/working layout? The docs should reside
somehow under
	/usr/share/doc/<package>
but can be linked into
	/usr/share/doc/texmf/
which in turn is linked from
	/usr/share/texmf/doc/
so that texdoc finds the stuff.

Best wishes

Norbert
