For what its worth, the automake macro was improved for man page 
extensions and locations upstream for So when new releases of 
source are provided by, they should have these fixes. In some cases, 
nobody at releases a new source tarball or they don't properly use 
the same automake macros for this. If this is submitted as a PR (or maybe 
someone else already did), I can later (probably end of July) look at 
upstream to see what is needed. Maybe we need updates in pkgsrc for new
