New imake config causing problems

[ Note CC: to debian-x ]

More of a heads-up than anything else I guess - I don't expect
anything to change really. I've just picked up a second serious bug
against one of my packages that uses imake.

Bug #113859 against nas:


Package: nas
Version: 1.4.2-1
Severity: serious

When I try to build the nas package, I get the error

making all in clients/audio/auconvert...
make[4]: Entering directory

This is really annoying - nas built just fine previously, but it looks
like there has been a significant change to the output of imake,
specifically to man page handling in CppManTarget in Imake.rules. My
other package, xpacman, had just the same problem. I'm not sure
whether I should file a bug against xlibs-dev for this or just work
around the problem...
