From: "Jesper L. Nielsen" <>


I installed Git subtree and discovered that the if the man1dir doesn't exist 
the man-page for Git Subtree is just called man1.

So, small patch to create the folder first in the Makefile. Hope everything is 
right with the patch and submitting of the patch.

Best Regards
