It seems like a reasonable goal. I do not have a strong opinion on the
approach or how the final output looks, but I wasn't able to actually
get output at all after applying your patches. Running "make fullpdf"
(after installing dblatex) got me:
The switch --book, is not support using unpatched qt, and will be
ignored.The switch --footer-html, is not support using unpatched qt,
and will be ignored.The switch --disable-external-links, is not
support using unpatched qt, and will be ignored.
after which wkhtmltopdf began pegging my CPU. I let it run for 10
minutes before giving up.
Another way of doing this would be to format the individual troff
manpages into dvi or postscript, convert that into pdf, and then
concatenate that. Something like:
for i in *.; do
man -Tdvi -l "$i" >"$i.dvi"
pdftk *..pdf cat output full.pdf
works for me, though obviously that does not handle some of the non-man
items you included. No idea on how the output compares to yours, but
it's something you may want to look at.
