[patch] Tools makefile installs manpages for binaries that are not being installed

Reported by: Paul "TBBle" Hampson <Paul.Hampson@Pobox.com> Assigned to: dwhedon
Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: dadwifi Version: dadwifi-branch
Keywords: Cc:
Patch is attached: 1 Pending:

Description

As Dadwifi uses the mac80211 stack for 802.11, it does not install most of the tools provided in the tools/ subdirectory. The !Makefile is modified to only install the relevant tool (athdebug) rather than the whole collection. (see log:branches/dadwifi/tools/Makefile#1764:1765)

However, this modification does not affect the installation and uninstallation of manpages, causing manpages to be installed that have no related binary installed.

The attached patch installs and uninstalls manpages similarly to the installation and uninstallation of tool binaries is handled, and further cleans up the manpage directory tree similarly to how the tools binary directory tree is cleaned up.

Patch is against source:branches/dadwifi@2594 and is probably acceptable upstream...
