Thanks for testing though!  :)
I believe the decision has been made to skip the fixpaths script completely,
in favor of using sed directly in configure.

Please do however test the awk script that I posted a while back.  :)

E.g. like this:

First save mdoc2man.awk in openssh-3.5p1 somewhere, this is the file that I
attached to my posting.  Then:

$ cd openssh-3.5p1
$ perl < sftp.1 > sftp.1.plver
$ awk -f mdoc2man.awk < sftp.1 > sftp.1.awkver
$ diff -U 2 sftp.1.plver sftp.1.awkver

The diff should only return a few lines with a list of authors and hopefully
the awk run shouldn't produce any error messages.
