GFDL and man pages



I am working on a package (csound) that has no manpages or documentation
of any sort (include --help) in the source archive. There is, however, a
detailed reference manual[1] with the GFDL license that includes command-line
program documentation[2,3]. There are no invariant or cover sections, but
there is an Acknowledgements section.

Am I safe to make manpages from this reference manual? Would that be a
derivative work? What attribution do I need to include and where (in the
manpages themselves, or in the copyright file, etc.)?

Thanks,
Hans
