Description David S. Collier-Brown 2005-06-17 15:09:20 UTC
The makefile says:
1) The SWAT files have been installed. Remember to read the swat/README
   for information on enabling and using SWAT

   Of course, there is no longer an <anywhere>/swat/README

2) Installing default man pages in /usr/local/samba/man/
   cp: cannot access
   chmod: WARNING: can't access /usr/local/samba/man/./man1/*1

   As it happens, the docs are not part of samba-trunk, 
   but instead are on svn.samba.org as 'samba-docs', and include
   the man pages. The latter seems excessive: however expert
   one might be, not reading man pages (or not having them
   to read) is A Bad Thing (:-))

I've fixed the first issue - easy.

I'm not so sure how to fix the second one portably though.  )-:

Updated installman.sh to skip manpages 
when they aren't there.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
