I added the line in my repository sourcecode. Building a kernel is
straightforward, but what about this case? How to build and use apropos
from the sourcecode?

Building parts of userland is pretty straight-forward too. Assuming the
standard /usr/tools and /usr/obj dirs. exist, I use this script to
compile stuff:


set -eu
make $V obj		# create build dirs.
exec make -j6 $V "$@"

To compile apropos:

$ cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/makemandb && compile apropos
# compile install PROGS=apropos		# as root
$ compile distclean
