NO_MAN is the standard knob. It is documented in mk/bsd.README. It can
be used by either users or makefiles to turn off normal man page processing.
It is used for this by src/Makefile.inc1 and could be used by makefiles
generally in the same way (to make several passes).
This commit quadruples the number of makefiles in /usr/src that use
the nonstandard method MAN=. Previously there was only 1
(libgssapi/Makefile). Such makefiles even used to be outnumbered by
ones which use NO_MAN with its correct spelling NOMAN (there are 4 of
these). About 200 makefiles use the standard knob.
NetBSD still uses mainly NOMAN= in makefiles. It never uses NO_MAN
in makefiles, but uses MAN= in about 13. It only documents NOxxx in
bsd.README, and says there that NOxxx is not intended for users.
Perhaps NO_xxx should be for users and NOxxx for makefiles.
