The $VERSION should be there.  /usr/share/doc is a symlink to /usr/doc. 
Doc dirs should be /usr/doc/NAME-VERSION.  Best option would be to see
if the ./configure script supports --docdir or could possibly so
something like run a sed on the Makefile.

but /usr/doc/xarchiver-0.4.4 is the proper place for documentation.  The
proper fix would be to get the app to respect that.
