Actually, if you use --mandir (which is the better idea -- I forgot 
about it completely) you don't need the install -d or mv in package() 
function; i.e. it would be the same as the other posted package function 
(the one in http://ix.io/4bk).

The upstream looks dead (inactive for 9 months, and no material commits 
for even longer), so I would suggest that last variation (fork, cherry 
pick fix, tag, release).
