I'm looking for solutions for the same problem, and it appears that this is
as far as this thread went.  Maybe you continued off list...

Here's what I get:

Warning: the following items did not execute (for help2man):

Considering the "error: perl module Locale::gettext required", is this
essentially fallout of the perl5 discussion currently going on?

Thanks for any insights.
