Description

missing has changed behaviour in this commit

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/automake.git/commit/lib/missing?id=a22717dffe37f30ef2ad2c355b68c9b3b5e4b8c7

which means that at least automake 1.13 has this behaviour. In short it means that make will fail if help2man is not available, which is not what we want. We want to be able to build svndigest with no help2man but that in that case 'make dist' or at least 'make distcheck' should fail.

(In [1592]) Addresses #530. Test for help2man should be independent of svn working copy existence. Improved help2man/man pages creation logic.

The solution is no good since the make rules will delete man pages when users with missing help2man try to build a downloaded package.
