When try to build the package devel/makedepend on Linux it fails with the following error:

The missing manpage has the wrong suffix - it's


on Linux.

try to build a package from devel/makedepend
This patch sets the APP_MAN_SUFFIX as environment in the Makefile of devel/makedepend to the correct value so when configure checks the environment on Linux it doesn't set APP_MAN_SUFFIX=1x

After the patch the package builds correctly on Linux.
