Bug#1737: missing man pages for accouting commands

True, but that is a bug in the upstream version that I as the maintainer
can't do anything about but writing the man page myself. And I don't have
enough time to do so. Any volunteers?

Well, Debian is a GNU system. And in the GNU world is a preference for
texinfo over manpages. Love it or loathe it --- and then do write some
manpages. I close this bug now.
