Could not be more boring:

$ make
make  all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/tange/privat/parallel-20100417'
Making all in src
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/tange/privat/parallel-20100417/src'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/tange/privat/parallel-20100417/src'
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/tange/privat/parallel-20100417'

Could the installer just be assuming that the manpage does not need to be build?

Since no one have pointed me to an existing minimal example for perl
and automake I think we should make that example now. I have made the
simplest program and included my (non working) automake files for
that. Feel free to download that to make it work :-)
