Do you have a non-empty docs/man/bbackupd.8.gz? Can you read it with 
zless? If so, then you have a working copy. I have no idea why it doesn't 
work for me. I suspect that my xslt stylesheets are broken. Perhaps if it 
downloads the latest ones from the net, instead of using the local ones, 
then it works.

Cheers, Chris.
