manually copying works, but i still need to keep 
/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb(after generatig the data, an empty texlive.tlpdb 
also works) which is not good for packaging.

I compile texlive from the official release, but texdoc comes by tlnet 
(no makefile/rakefile), which was no issue with texlive 2017.

What do other package distributors do since texdoc 3.0?
