[gio] Doesn't install/dist the manpages unless --enable-man is given
Last modified: 2010-04-26 13:07:12 UTC
The attached patch gives the same behaviour to the gio manpages as for all other manpages, i.e. include them in tarballs and always install them, not only if --enable-man was given to configure and don't clean them on make distclean.

Ok to push this?
I fear that will break make distcheck. If it doesn't, feel free to push.
Yes, it does. But why does it work for the other manpages? Does it?
Because the others are in git ?
Good point ;) Shall I add the gio manpages to GIT too?
No, I'd rather move away from that practice.
Anyway, there is some brokenness surrounding man pages that causes the formatted man pages to not end up in the release tarballs. I'm looking at that right now.
I think things should be working better now. I've got some help from Behdad, and just copied the pango approach to man pages.
