Thanks, Russ. I believe this is half the answer. But it seems I still
need a couple of lines. Here is what I have now:

$ cat src/
dist_bin_SCRIPTS = parallel
man_MANS = parallel.1

parallel.1: parallel
       pod2man --release='$(PACKAGE_VERSION)' --center='$(PACKAGE_NAME)' \
           --section=1 parallel > parallel.1

CLEANFILES = parallel.1

$ cat

$ cat
AC_INIT([parallel], [1.0], address@hidden)
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([-Wall -Werror foreign])

When running:

  autoreconf --install -W gnu; ./configure ; make

the manpage is not made. Doing

  cd src
  make parallel.1

does not make the man page either.

The good part is that 'make install' would have done the right thing
had the man page been made.

I probably just need a single line to get make to make the man page. Hints?
