That's OK. Just like any of the other sections in the book, it's
expected that you'll be in the source tree of the tarball that you
just unpacked. So, in this case, you should have unpacked the
man-pages-2.42 tarball and moved into top level of the source tree. It
should have a Makefile, and you can just run `make install' since
there's nothing to be built, it's just data.
