I tried "make man" on my Fedora 10 machine. It built stuff, but:

* I see it claiming to be making manpages for the SPI functions and
dblink functions, eg

Note: meta manvol : no refentry/refmeta/manvolnum dblink_connect
Note: meta manvol : see http://docbook.sf.net/el/manvolnum dblink_connect
Note: Writing man1/dblink_connect.1

but no output file actually appears. And why is it dropping this stuff
in section 1, wouldn't 3 be more appropriate?

* The section-7 man pages are back to being created with all-upper-case
file names. I thought we'd agreed not to do that.

regards, tom lane
