Added by Teemu Murtola about 3 years ago

Do not use for non-manpage doc builds

Avoid importing for Sphinx invocations that do not build man
pages. Since it only specifies man page build rules, it is not
necessary, and some of the targets do not have dependencies that would
ensure that it is present.

Fixes #2184.

#1 Updated by Mark Abraham about 3 years ago

Some of the sphinx targets need make man before the is built. The install guide doesn't need it, but i'm not sure if there's a good fix.
