help2man is a tool for automatically generating simple manual pages
from program output. It is intended to provide an easy way for
software authors to include a manual page in their distribution
without having to maintain that document. Given a program which
produces reasonably standard --help and --version outputs, help2man
will attempt to re-arrange that output into something which resembles
a manual page. Generation of localised pages is supported for: de, el,
fi, fr, it, pl, pt_BR, ru, sv and vi.

Summary of recent changes:

* Updated translations for Finnish, German and French.
* New translations for Russian, Italian and Greek.
* Preload is now correctly installed into pkglibdir, rather than libdir.
* UTF-8 encoding is now used for all manual pages.
* Bugfix: don't double encode $date in the header.
* Bugfix: update makefile to allow "make install -j" to work.
