It appears to me that IMAKE_MAN_SUFFIX so far was never actually used.
Instead IMAKE_MANNEWSUFFIX was used. So the setting for IMAKE_MAN_SUFFIX
for a given system should be completely irrelevant so far.
One might eliminate the IMAKE_MAN_SUFFIX variable, or, and that's probably
more consistent on the longer run although maybe a bit more confusing at
first, rename all occurrences of IMAKE_MANNEWSUFFIX into IMAKE_MAN_SUFFIX
and make sure IMAKE_MAN_SUFFIX gets set to today's IMAKE_MANNEWSUFFIX's
