The documentation (man pages) is not installed because the top-level Makefile deliberately removes the 'doc' subdirectory from SUBDIRS:

# Avoid trouble if your system doesn't have xmlto.
#amappend_1 = doc
...
SUBDIRS = lib util pic $(am
append_1)

However, the man pages can be installed with no trouble at all by doing this:

make -C doc install

    Can't be any pther way. Without xmlto, those pages can't be built; ergo, they can't be installed.
