Is this the consensus/best-practice on this question?
It seems like it would be quite taxing on the autobuilders to have to pull
something like docbook (and its chain of dependencies) into a pbuilder just
to recompile a manpage that doesn't change between architectures.
I'm interested in this because I've typically done (2), but have recently
started to think that (1) is more appropriate, particularly for packages
where the documentation is a simple manpage.
