[Fedora-packaging] PLEASE HELP - We need a policy for preventing man page name conflicts

Many packages provide man3 (and other) man pages with generic names.
The case in question in ncarg-devel and allegro-devel which both provide
man3/line.3.gz. So, what do we do?
- package in /usr/share/<package>/man/? If so, how to we update
MANPATH? How does man handle finding both (all) of the man pages?
- rename to something like <package>_<manpage>? Do we always do this?
Only if a file conflicts? Is there an easy way to find conflicts before
- suffixes <manpage>.3<suffix> ? Can man handle this?
