Yes, please flatten it all to one commit.

Additionally, you can look how to do github commitid based packaging.
See. e.g. main/bmd-tools for this:

I believe the compression of manpages happens now automatic, so the
explicit gzip should not be needed in doc(). Well, you'd probably need
to install the .doc files before calling default_doc.

There was also few whitespace mismatches (tabs vs. spaces).

But other than these nitpicks on formatting, it looks good.

Please resubmit with fixes!
