db: remove pointless documentation
db-doc has an installed footprint of 94MB, but 60MB of that is the documentation for the Java and C# bindings which are not part of this recipe. Remove them and the for-print PDF manuals to massively reduce the footprint of db-doc. Also improve the fix for the documentation install path, and put the documentation under ${docdir}/db instead of just ${docdir} (which is /usr/share/doc by default). Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <>
