Re: [PATCH] build: Add --disable-man-pages option

    There's a circular build dependency between texinfo and help2man

Sorry, I don't see the circle.  help2man should not require texinfo in
order to be installed -- it comes with help2man.info (like all GNU
packages are supposed to), precisely to avoid that dependency.

As for texinfo, it doesn't exactly require help2man, either.  The man
pages are included in the distribution, again to avoid the dependency.
