Right, it's deprecated, because we believe that installing the
documentation on the target is useless in Buildroot's context. So we
don't want BR2_HAVE_DOCUMENTATION to be replaced by new, package
specific options that do the same thing :-)

For now, I'd say: use BR2_HAVE_DOCUMENTATION, so that the day we decide
to finally remove it, we can easily grep in the source code to find the
things we can remove or simplify.
