I was thinking about this one recently...

I really think the "correct" solution is for man/custom-entities.ent
to be generated by configure from a man/custom-entities.ent.in
template instead. I haven't really checked if that's viable though, if
configure knows about every variable it will need, etc. but I was
planning to look into it at some point in the near future.

Yes I think that's a good start and `make clean` will trigger a
rebuild of most of what depends on custom-entities.ent anyways so I
wouldn't expect a lot of spurious rebuilds due to that.
