firstly, this is perfect behaviour:
if you specify several search-paths you can't complain that all the paths are
searched, do you ?
anyhow, you  could specify the whole path when trying to load the library in the
first place, eg: "pd -lib /path/to/my/superlib/superlib:/old/libs/oldlib"
instead of "pd -path /path/to/my/superlib:/old/libs/oldlib -lib superlib:oldlib"

there is a "-helppath" option.
and i don't understand, why anyone would install the docs into "5.doc" instead
of "doc" (or "doc/5.reference")
