Hi Everyone,

I'm building Zile 2.4.14 from the release tarball. The build is dying at:

PACKAGE_NAME="Zile" /usr/bin/perl -I./build-aux ./build-aux/mkfuncs.pl
. src/basic.c src/bind.c src/buffer.c src/eval.c src/file.c
src/funcs.c src/help.c src/killring.c src/line.c src/gc_veneer.c
src/lisp.c src/macro.c src/redisplay.c src/registers.c src/search.c
src/undo.c src/variables.c src/window.c
  GEN      doc/zile.1.in
./build-aux/missing: 81: ./build-aux/missing: help2man: not found
WARNING: 'help2man' is missing on your system.
         You should only need it if you modified a dependency of a man page.
         You may want to install the GNU Help2man package:
Makefile:2954: recipe for target 'doc/zile.1.in' failed

I don't have help2man installed. In fact, I don't want any
documentation. Many of the systems I build on don't have the storage
to accommodate docs. Plus, I read the online docs when I need help.

I'm running 'make -j 4 HELP2MAN=true', so I hoped the docs would just
be skipped. (The is no --disable-doc option, so I'm trying to use the
HELP2MAN trick).

Any ideas how to finish the build?

Thanks in advance.
