Hi John.

I changed the help2man rule yet again, because depending on the
executable was having two bad effects:

1. make distcheck fails because of poke.1 being regenerated.
2. The tarball user needs to have help2man installed.

So I followed the recommendations in the Automake manual and made sure
the poke executable is properly generated before calling help2man like

poke.1: $(top_srcdir)/src/poke.c $(common_mandeps)
        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) $(builddir)/../src/poke$(EXEEXT)
        POKEDATADIR=$(abs_top_srcdir)/src \
           $(HELP2MAN) -p poke --name="The GNU extensible binary editor" \
                $(builddir)/../src/poke$(EXEEXT) -o $@
