This is something yet to be determined (I will investigate). It's likely that they *can* do `make man` without xmlto, but perhaps they wouldn't have a perfect output (yet to be determined). > > @@ -201,6 +202,11 @@ Issues of note: > > use Asciidoctor (requires Ruby) by passing USE_ASCIIDOCTOR=YesPlease > > to make.

"Not usable"? I haven't been able to reproduce the original supposed problem, but even if true, the man pages would be quite usable. (not beeing able to copy-paste chunks of code from a man page with apostrophes can't be hardly considered "unusable"). Either way, more work is needed to figure out what's going on.
