I took a crack at doing something along those lines by installing the 
attached. This doesn't have a Makefile option; it tries to intuit the 
right thing without bothering the installer. Since workman.sh is not 
using POSIX-standardized commands and this is a messy area (mandoc 
doesn't emulate nroff well enough to be perfect here, among other things 
it mishandles .ti) I figured giving people options would be more trouble 
than it's worth.

It does puzzle me that workman.sh was called at all. If I run "make 
traditional_tarballs" from a freshly extracted distribution,  workman.sh 
is not executed. I guess the man page source is being updated for some 
reason, but I don't know what that reason is.
