Do you really want to generate separate copies of the man page for each
function documented by the same source POD file?  It's more normal to
generate one copy of the man page and then, during make install, symlink
the other ones to the one man page that you generate.

If you make that change, then there's a one-to-one correspondance between
source files and output *roff files, at which point (if they're named
accordingly) the pattern rule would work.
