You'd probably have to modify some of the packages, at least to remove  
glibc (I'm not sure what BSD uses instead)

What do you mean? I wouldn't use pkg_add, etc if I was using pacman.  
That's just a recipe for disaster. Stick to one package management  
system and everything should be ok.

You need to specify --enable-asciidoc and/or --enable-doxygen for ./ 
configure. I don't know why the pacman PKGBUILD doesn't have either,  
and yet somehow the man pages are there.
