This is not a variable that should be set to yes, the way MKMAN is
currently used in the Makefiles.

Just don't set it, since it defaults to building man pages.  If you
manually set it, it overrides the MKMAN=no for e.g. uuchk, which
causes your build failure.

I think the proper way to fix this would be replacing the MKMAN=no
with NOMAN= #defined in the Makefiles, so that the user can set set
MKMAN to yes or no to his liking (and I think Luke agrees, last we
talked about that). This would need a fun search-and-replace in all
the Makefiles in the tree that use MKMAN=no, of course.
