Ah, this is potato!

Yes, I can reproduce this on a potato system.
I'm not sure how to cope with this; I guess I could upload to
"stable", and hope it gets into proposed-updates; however, I
recall one of the ftp-masters writing that proposed-updates
should go away...

The point is that potato is "stable", meaning nothing really gets
changed there.
Aargh, man-db got installed as a security-fix a couple of days
ago. Whoever Somehow the alpha package must have been botched
(the i386 package is OK).  I'll have a look at fixing this for

It only generates a manpage if there isn't one in the cache.
Apparently even with the error a file (possibly empty) is created.

Build-Depends should help against that in the future...

Ouch, that's a lot...

Anyway, it might be recommendable to upgrade to "testing",
which is quite usable IMHO. At least there things can be
fixed easily.
