branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/next

For this man file install scenario, joining the sys.prefix makes the
path absolute (this was previously working by accident).  It was
found when e94280e5a537b "package/pkg-python: use proper --prefix
and --root values" was merged.

+Subject: [PATCH] setup.py: drop path prefix from man install
+If the directory is a relative path, it is interpreted relative to the
+installation prefix (Python's sys.prefix for pure-Python packages,
+sys.exec_prefix for packages that contain extension modules).
+So the sys.prefix should not be joined because the correct one will be
+added regardless. The reason why a relative path is going to work is
+because the installation path is built internally joining python root
+with python prefix, thus forming the correct path $(TARGET_DIR)/usr.
+For this man file install scenario, joining the sys.prefix makes the
+path absolute (this was previously working by accident).
