[tex-live] TeX Live bugs: Some missing files

Here's some more.
pst-layout has pst-layout.sty in the doc tree
The following packages:
all have documentation in doc/generic, but no run-files in
tex/generic (only latex .sty files in tex/latex). It seems
the documentation ought to be in doc/latex.
Of course, nowadays one can use texdoc and not worry where
the doc files are, so this is not a priority, I think.
(But I have written a couple of scripts that expect this
sort of correspondence.)

While I am willing to accept all kudos as well-deserved, these
discoveries did not require much diligence (amazing or otherwise).
I had noticed in the past a few empty directories under doc/ .
I conjectured that an auto-removed package might not always have
its directory removed for some reason. I never found a corresponding
empty directory under tex, so I ran a simple command that checked
each directory under doc/latex and doc/generic for the existence of
a matching one in the appropriate location under tex/ .
It was mainly idle curiosity, and all the information that I
have passed on was obtained in less than 1/2 hour. (Which I
had to spare because I had been laid up several days with the flu.)
