Subject: [PATCH 2/2] doc: don't attempt to install non-existent manpages
Date: Fri, 29 Nov 2019 11:09:14 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

More effort needs to be made to get the full doc build
portable across different "make" implementations.  I assume
BSD users don't want GNU make installed, at all...
