That's fair. How does this revised description sound? "Excerpts from the
POSIX.1-2008 and TC1 standards (collectively, POSIX.1-2013) in manual
page form. While the Linux man-pages project documents the system as it
exists, this package documents the portable software API nominally
implemented by many unix-likes."

Sounds good!

There is a #:parallel-build? #f, but no #:make-target field, as far as I
could tell. Though, the build phase doesn't explicitly target all, so it
would be possible to provide the gz target through #:make-flags.

But, also, all the build phase does is compress the manpages, which
could entirely be done by the compress-documentation phase with some
edits done to it; at the moment, its regex for detecting manpages
doesn't take into account the [023]p format of this package's manpages.

Sure! I'll submit that with v2 as a patchset.
