When new packages are installed by tlmgr --all, it seems new sym links
to binaries or man pages aren't added in the usual places, such as
/usr/local/bin or /usr/local/share/man. Is this a bug or a feature?
The "usual place" in my life is /usr/local/texlive/YYYY/bin/* (and man,
similarly), which does get updated.
Of course, you're talking about the system directories. As far as I'm
conerned, it's a feature that we don't play around with system
directories on updates.
I believe you can update your system directories if you choose to by running
tlmgr path add
but I can't say I've ever tried it, except for a little testing after
Norbert implemented it ...
