Yes, I also don't like the 2nd patch. Developers should notice if the
of manpages is broken.

If modified the first patch a bit, see
And also skip the generation of pidl manpages with --no-manpages.

Yes, the usage of --nonet would be really good as a default,
together with a test that checks if we can generate a trivial manpage
when using the --nonet option.
