Hint: Charles Wilson has a ready to go help2man package at his testing
site, this is also what I'm using, he seeks for a maintainer, it just
needs to be rebuild with --prefix=/usr instead of /usr/local.
And why are there difficulties to build it? Strange, it is just a
perl script, I guess the only thing the configure and make does is to
alter the path to the perl binary in the script?
