It's not as scary as it looks, just something I want done. If not for the 
book I'll do it for personal reasons anyways, but I believe there are some 
folks here who would like to have an accurate dependency list.

If you do that to util-linux, you have to do it to every other package, since 
they all use /usr/man (unless you deal with a fairly up-to-date package which 
uses /usr/share/man).
