Hi,

Here are two patches from Debian for the man page and manual.
The first simply removes some odd blanks/formatting from bzip2.1.
The second adds the --help option to the manual and man page.
The last one adds generation of bzip2.txt and bzip2.1.preformatted
to the Makefile, so they are freshly generated when doing a dist.

[PATCH 1/3] bzip2.1: remove blank spaces in man page and drop the
            .PU macro
[PATCH 2/3] Mention the --help command line option in the manual
[PATCH 3/3] Add generation of bzip2.txt and bzip2.1.preformatted
            to Makefile

Ideally the bzip2.1 man page itself would be generated from the
manual.xml file. But I saw that on Debian even the pdf and html
generation of the manual seem to fail. Debian does have a
xml-manual-escape.diff patch, which escape special characters in
XML source of the manual' but that seems wrong to me. The special
characters don't seem special in xml, only in the html. So when
applied the characters get escaped twice. Does Debian regenerate
the manual, and if so, does it do it differently than how it
is done through the upstream xmlproc.sh script?

Thanks,

Mark
