Description Miloslav Trmač 2004-11-22 06:07:52 EST
The default character set of xmlto for man pages seems to be locale-dependent.
The patchutils-0.2.30 tarball contains man pages in iso-8859-1.

It might be better to run xmlto as (LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 xmlto ...)
* to make builds more reproducible
* because UTF-8 is The One Right Encoding (-: and man complains when man pages
  are not in UTF-8.
