autoconf/CVS fails to create some docs due to:

make[1]: Entering directory /u/mai/compile/auto/autoconf/autoconf/man'
test -f ../autoscan && prog=../autoscan; \
test -f ../autoscan && prog=../autoscan; \
test -f ../config/autoscan && prog=../config/autoscan; \
if test -n "$prog"; then \
  echo "Updating man page autoscan.1"; \
  help2man \
    --include=./autoscan.x \
    --include=./common.x \
    --output=autoscan.1 $prog; \
else \
  echo "WARNING: The man page autoscan.1 cannot be updated yet."; \
  echo "         Retry once the corresponding executable is built."; \
Updating man page autoscan.1
Unknown option: include
Unknown option: include
elp2man' generates a man page out of --help' and --version' output.

Usage: help2man [OPTION]... EXECUTABLE

  --name=STRING  use TRING' as the description for the NAME paragraph
  --output=FILE  send output to ILE'
  --help         print this help, then exit
  --version      print help2man program version number, then exit

EXECUTABLE should accept --help' and ersion' options.
make[1]: *** [autoscan.1] Error 255
make[1]: Leaving directory /u/mai/compile/auto/autoconf/autoconf/man'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Seems autoconf's configure didn't check for a correct version
of man2html and I can't even find a notice in the docs
which is required. My copy says:

help2man 1.1
