I don't know.  It doesn't get rebuild when I build it (on any
platform).  The person reporting this was a packager, so perhaps they
modify the build environment somehow.  *looks* Yes, they modify
ltmain.sh, and probably re-run autoreconf or something like it.  If I
run autoreconf in an unpacked archive, the manual is rebuilt for me
too.  So it sounds like a bug caused by their own customizations.

Ok.  It sounds like something useful though.  O well.
