I've addressed this in the update I pushed last night. The changes I
made were: fix the fltk build (it wasn't working), include the pdf and
html manual in /usr/doc/teapot-2.3.0, and alter the man page to say
/usr/doc/teapot-2.3.0 instead of /usr/share/doc/teapot.

Also restored the original homepage and download links, since the
original site is now up again.

All this stuff will be in this week's update, which means you should
see it Saturday or so.

BTW, did you ever contact the actual maintainer of the teapot
build? From the .info file, that would be Jostein Berntsen,
jbernts at broadpark.no. I took it on myself to fix the build because I
assumed "hey, not updated in years, maintainer must be MIA", but it
looks like his other builds have been getting updates... Jostein, if
you're reading this, I apologize if I stepped on your toes.
