This package can easily be confused with 'man-pages' -- at least, I
initially confused this as a duplicate of man-pages. Could the relationship
be clarified in the description?
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."

'as it exists' -> 'as it exists on Linux- and glibc-based systems', as we also support the Hurd.

Otherwise looks good to me.

Also, IIRC there's a #:make-target and #:parallel-build? #false
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.
Right, there's a #:test-target but not #:make-target.
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.

I think we could do #:make-flags "gz" for now, extending the regex to [023]p is more of a long-term thing (while a simple change, it would cause many rebuilds and hence needs to be done on core-updates).
