Right. Simplest solution that kind of works: build those manpages,
but don't install them. Why build them? Because they are hard to
read otherwise. This wasn't true in Henry's day (because we wrote
directly in *roff).
Refinement: add a new makefile target (say: install-dev-manpages) that
would install those manpages. The modest advantage of installing is
that "man -k" can then find them.
