Installing and uninstalling

"make install" will copy these man pages to /usr/share/man/man[1-8].

To install to a path different from /usr, use "make install prefix=/install/path".

"make remove" or "make uninstall" will remove any man page in this distribution from its destination. Use with caution, and remember to use "prefix" if desired, as with the "install" target.

"make" or "make all" will perform "make uninstall" followed by "make install".
