	Manual pages installed for the ntp software (ntpq, ntpd, etc.)
	are stale.  They are from 2013 instead of being from the
	imported ntp software (which is currently from 2018).
	Read manual pages and notice they do not correspond to how
	the software works.
	Correctly generate manual pages from the dist/*/*
	files and install those instead of maintaining separate copies
	parallel to dist.

	There are dist/*/*.1*mdoc (e.g. dist/ntpq/ntpq.1ntpqmdoc) files
	currently in the tree. The naming seems like an accident during
	generation before importing.

	Based on a comparison of the mdoc files in dist with those
	parallel to dist it looks like if the filenames and section
	numbers inside the files were generated correctly, they would
	be perfectly suitable for installing as the manual pages.
