Description Xi Ruoyao 2022-08-25 04:02:23 UTC
All other binutils compoents has man pages bundled in the release tarball, but gprofng does not.  Then if binutils is built from source without help2man installed, we end up with empty man pages installed into system.

If you really don't want to bundle the man page, at least don't install an empty one.

Thanks for the feedback. This was definitely not intentional and will be addressed as soon as possible.
