This part of the configuration is only relevant if you want to be able to read the phpMyAdmin documentation by visiting http://<servername>/phpmyadmin-doc/
If you do, then you need to make a symlink "phpmyadmin-doc" inside your document root (whatever you may have configured that to be) pointing to the phpMyAdmin documentation folder.
If your httpd.conf says the document root is /opt/local/www/apache2/html, then that's the directory in which you make that symlink.
