Rather than generate empty manpage files if docbook2man is not 
installed, it would be helpful to just dump out a stub file that man 
can display. The message would be the same for each package, something 
like, "The man pages for this package require docbook2man (or something 
equivalent) to build."

Or, "cat" files with the same message, but the install destination is 
different for those.

My $0.02 worth...
