Tried compiling current git with your patch, setting
cross_compiling=yes in the configure line. The results are installed
man pages, that looks like this:

cat(1)                      General Commands Manual                     cat(1)

       cat - a GNU coreutils UNKNOWN program

       OOPS!  We were unable to create a proper manual page for cat.  For
       concise option descriptions, run

              env cat --help

       The full documentation for cat is maintained as a Texinfo manual, which
       should be accessible on your system via the command

              info '(coreutils) cat invocation'

User Commands                GNU coreutils UNKNOWN                      cat(1)

Replace "cat" with the util name for every man page.
