Please prevent installing man5/passwd.5 of the man-pages package.

This ticket has been re-posted revised my following post.
In LFS 7.8 "6.25. Shadow-4.2.1", passwd.5 of the shadow package overwrites already installed passwd.5 of the man-pages package.
However, it's hard for LFS readers to judge whether this overwriting is intended or not, because there is no supplementary explanation about overwriting in this page.
Therefore, I suggest installation of passwd.5 of the man-pages package is prevented.
If this suggestion is not acceptable, I think at least it would be better to add supplementary explanation that overwriting passwd.5 is intended.
As far as I have found in the BLFS book at present,
there are following pages that contain the supplementary explanation about overwriting files.
(Find in page with the keyword "overwrite".)
