  Of course, the (mdoc) man pages are trivially converted to html via, e.g.,

    nroff -mdoc2html /usr/share/man/man1/man.1

since /usr/share/tmac/tmac.doc2html has been in the tree for quite some time.
It even has a macro for generating links (Lk), though it appears not to have
been used in any of the NetBSD man pages, and it's not documented on the
mdoc man page.
