No, it is lieing to you. Manpages aren't "built". Watch your 'make
output', it does nothing in the docs directory. And installing the
manpages is just a few file copies.
This is more applicable today:
--enable-docs Use this if you want manpages installed. Apparently
this was once such a long, time-consuming process
that someone bothered to make this option. Now, it
is a bug that this isn't enabled by default.
