On GNU systems, at least, "man -Tps" results in a reasonably good
paper version, unless the manpage author made formatting blunders that
weren't apparent on his tty (such as using 'foo' instead of `foo').

PDFs generated in this way unfortunately don't have clickable
hyperlinks and don't have a PDF ToC; I suspect texinfo (by way of
LaTeX) wins on both those points.
