It is one of the cases where a new system will be almost impossible to 
bootstrap. I saw something similar in GO build system

so for me Pandoc seems a no go.

I should be clear: the build requirements here are ***only if you try to build 
a git clone***.

If you're building from an Open MPI distribution tarball, the man pages will be 
pre-built and included in the tarball -- no pandoc is needed (just like we do 
with GNU Flex, GNU Autotools, ... etc.).

So I should re-phrase my question: do you ever have the need to build Open MPI 
from a git clone?  And if so, would having pandoc available -- like Flex / 
Autotools -- be a problem?
