Hi friends!

Do the HTML and PDF versions of our man pages that we ship in every
tarball provide any value to you?

Removing them from the tarballs would take away between 30-35% of the
compressed file size and thus produce much smaller release packages.

A simple check right now:

  bz2 - from 4047215 to 2568070 bytes
  zip - from 7366802 to 5019690 bytes

I just have the feeling that very few users actually care for these
versions of the docs so we're just artifically bloat the package to very
little gain.

They are not required in the tarball. Also, the xz compression would be
even smaller.  Try this :

    xz -9ekv  foo
