I see these in Documentation/Makefile:
  #
  # For asciidoc ...
  #	-7.1.2,	no extra settings are needed.
  #	8.0-,	set ASCIIDOC8.
  #

  #
  # For docbook-xsl ...
  #	-1.68.1,	set ASCIIDOC_NO_ROFF? (based on changelog from 1.73.0)
  #	1.69.0,		no extra settings are needed?
  #	1.69.1-1.71.0,	set DOCBOOK_SUPPRESS_SP?
  #	1.71.1,		no extra settings are needed?
  #	1.72.0,		set DOCBOOK_XSL_172.
  #	1.73.0-,	set ASCIIDOC_NO_ROFF
  #

  #
  # If you had been using DOCBOOK_XSL_172 in an attempt to get rid
  # of 'the ".ft C" problem' in your generated manpages, and you
  # instead ended up with weird characters around callouts, try
  # using ASCIIDOC_NO_ROFF instead (it works fine with ASCIIDOC8).
