>> I struggled with this just the other day.  I could not get the build system to install the man pages despite many attempts.  I gave up and just did a manual install by copying the man subdirectory of the source into my install directory.

Why doesn't "make doc" or "make man" lead to the building of the man
pages?  The configure --help output clearly indicates that there is a
default path for the man pages already so I do not know why I need to
provide this to make it work.
