Ruslan's commit was intended to remove (most of the) MAN8= definitions
in certain Makefiles.  That's great.

Unfortunately, in some cases, he also removed SRCS= definitions, which is
not so good inasmuch as it breaks buildworld.  Either he deleted too
much out of the Makefiles, or the SRCS= removal was intentional and
should have been documented in the commit message (as far as I can tell 
this has *nothing* to do with manpages).

Michael's patch (which unbreaks buildworld) only backs out the SRCS=

Feel free to hand me a giant clue if I'm missing something really
obvious.  In other words, is world *supposed* to build in the absence of
SRCS= definitions?
