In the thread on:
cvs commit: src/tools/regression/lib/libc/resolv Makefile
des made the comment:

Since we abandoned MAN[1-9]. The fact that many old Makefiles
still use NO_MAN doesn't make it right; NO_MAN is a user knob,
not a Makefile knob (same distinction as between WITH_FOO and
USE_FOO in the ports tree)
This is one of those issues that I have no personal opinion on,
other than I wanted lpr's makefiles to be "correct", for whatever
the consensus is for what "correct" means. I probably should
have waited for more discussion in that thread before making this
change, but I just happened to be looking over some code in 'lpr'
when I read the above comment, so I thought "I might as well fix
this as long as I'm right here...".
