Good observations. If only someone would give the correct answers...

When compiling yourself you get to choose where to install. From my
point of view it would be wrong to "mess up" elsewhere.. However,
updating the installation documentation on our web page is in order to
mention how to get the documentation to work.

I would guess that the wrong permissions for your locales is due to
too strict umask.
