I worked around it by recompiling it:
apt-get --compile source man-db, and then doing a dpkg -i on the resulting
.deb file.  I had to do a hold in dselect as well, because otherwise it
wants to re-"upgrade" the package.

Gvim is similarly misbuilt...

I don't know the right way to ask for a rebuild of a package.
