What do you mean with "its click message"? Accepting that dialog immediately gives the next import wizard dialog where you enter the project name.

This extends David's logic to the situation where you have an entire parallel install in KDEVELOP_INSTALL_PREFIX, and thus a potentially large number of duplicate (or newer versions of) manpages in there.

The manpage plugin is mostly an annoyance to me so I can drop this hunk (I usually turn the plugin off). I've been thinking lately that KDevelop c/should just interface with khelpcentre to handle manpage display (and probably only care about sections 2 and 3*).
