Yeah. Let me know if things aren't working correctly. I could move
asciidoc to extra but didn't see the need right now. The docbook-xsl
package was broken for a bit, but seems to be working now.

The big advantage this gives us is much more user-friendly editing of
the manpages, much better HTML output (with linking between them), and
the ability to do some macros and such that aren't from the 1970s.

Now we just need someone to volunteer to keep these bad boys up to
date. :) Patches always welcome.
