- Make separate spec file for PolicyKit-doc so that PolicyKit does
not require TeX for building.

This is because TeX stuff is **huge**.

and use of TeX for man pages is incredible...

They use DocBook, wich pulls in deps:
xmlto -> passivetex -> xmltex -> texlive

The use of DocBook is very common and far from "incredible".

But we don't need passivetex to generate man pages, so can't we
just block the xmlto->passivetex dependency, i.e. add

#!BuildIgnore: passivetex

to the spec file?
