sub pod2man {
# @script is scripts names if we are installing manpages embedded
# in scripts, () otherwise
my($poddir, $mandir, $manext, @script) = @_;
if ($mandir eq ' ' or $mandir eq '') {
so setting man1dir to '' should work.

Now that I look at it again, that if() implies that setting it to ' '
*should* have worked too, doesn't it?

Setting it to '' results in just what the warnings I mentioned earlier
suggested would happen - Configure ignored it, and "make install"
created the man/ directory anyway.
