I just committed a patch that makes docbook2man optional, but forces
the built man pages to be included in `make dist'. You'll get a weird
error if you try to run `make dist' and you don't have docbook2man
installed. I think this covers all the situations.

Also, `make distcheck' is broken by the ChangeLog rule. Looking into it...
