Well, something's screwed up with Shadow then (surprise, surprise!):

$ for file in `ls -1 /sources/shadow-4.0.18.1/man/*.8`; do 
ls /usr/share/man/man8/$(basename $file); done;

/usr/share/man/man8/chgpasswd.8

/usr/share/man/man8/faillog.8

Can someone with more Automake/Makefile foo explain to me why those 5 man 
pages aren't being installed please?  It might just be a conincidence, but 
they all appear on the same line in the definition of man_MANS in 
man/Makefile!  Other man sections that shadow installs files to look OK using 
a similar script to the one above.

Thanks,

Matt.
