The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3134
installman.sh claims "No manpages present"
Last modified: 2005-10-12 09:24:47 UTC
In attempting to build a port for OpenBSD, I found that installman.sh was not
installing the man pages, but instead claiming that there are "No manpages
present". The following patch fixes the problem.

I'm ok with the patch but I'm trying to understand the
condition under which it occurs. Are you buildking outside
of the source directory?
Yes, that's right, I'm making an OpenBSD port, which builds outside of the
David. This has been fixed for 3.0.20b. Marc Balmer <firstname.lastname@example.org>
sent me an identical patch. Are you guys working together on the OpenBSD
Thanks for fixing the problem.
No I wasn't working with anyone else, but I was adapting the existing OpenBSD
port for the new version of Samba, so it's not too surprising that we both
encountered the same problem.
