it passes for me with freebsd-make on GNU/Linux, but fails with native
make on FreeBSD and OpenBSD (looked at old logs of man4.test), each
failure looking something like this:

  + make distcheck
  /usr/local/bin/bash /tmp/build/tests/man4.dir/build/man4-1.0/missing --run 
help2man --output=../bar.1 ../bar
  help2man: can't unlink ../bar.1 (Permission denied)
  *** Error code 1

  Stop in /tmp/build/tests/man4.dir/build/man4-1.0/_build.
  *** Error code 1

  Stop in /tmp/build/tests/man4.dir/build.

Which make and system do you see the failure on, is it the same?
Maybe it's time we analyse and fix it?

Rest of the review hopefully to come tonight.
