This does fix it for me. I see that you included it in gnutls master.
Thanks :)

Sadly the building of manpages still gets stuck in this loop.

I think what happens is this:

 * doc/manpages/ gets updated by the build process (which
   is a strange way to do it)
 * The manpages then rebuild because a file was changed/touched.

Ad infinitum.

Every time I build gnutls I see this as a change:

stef at stef-laptop:~/projects/gnutls$ git status
# On branch master
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working
#	modified:   doc/manpages/
no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
