handbooks (when i initially created the split to fix mga #2101) where
only added as suggested.
How ever due to the use of bcd to create iso since mga2, suggests are
not available anymore on iso so in order to workaround it luc did add
a task handbooks which pulls thoses handbooks for dvd generation (& so
they are now available on iso).
Maybe a bug should be created with the problematic packages so luc can
have a look on it.
