   Yup.  However, the GNU folks do provide something for the rest of us;
   help2man accepts a GNU program name, runs it with the --help and
   --version arguments, and writes a pretty good manpage.

     me% wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/help2man/help2man-1.36.4.tar.gz
     me% tar xzfv help2man-1.36.4.tar.gz
     me% cd help2man-1.36.4
     me% ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --mandir=/usr/local/man
     root# make install
     me% make distclean

   If you have GNU tar installed:

     root# help2man /usr/local/bin/gtar > /usr/local/man/man1/gtar.1
