Re: [PATCH] Fix problem with generation of man/poke.1

         I don't get it.  The man/ subdirectory is recursed by Automake after
         src/ while executing the target `all' so the binary should indeed exist
         at the time the rule is triggered...  
    You cannot guarantee that.  Firstly, if the -j flag is passed then you
    do not know the order - they could even happen in parallel.  Secondly,
    when make sees a rule like :
    basedir: src man x y
    whilst *most* implementations (when no -j flag is given) process the 
    targets from left to right, that is not specified by any standard
    (the GNU Make manual doesn't specify)

Ah I didn't know that :)
All right, the change is OK for master then.
