Thanks for the patch!  I've gone ahead and included it in the latest git
since it should make a standard build a little simpler. I do note that for
any patched builds where the yodl (.yo) doc files got changed that there is
still a perl dependency when running the tweak_manpage script on the
yodl2man output. That would be a much rarer build, though (since the
release tars contain the default .1 and .5 output files).
