Applying $patch_url patch is to not use docbook-utils by fontconfig so forced 
patching and then asking for optional docbook-utils which will not be used 
thanks to patching is insane.

Because building man pages is so minor feature it is not worth asking user. If 
an user is doc reader he/she will have docbook-utils already installed if not 
then not.
That is why I find my patch optimal: install man pages when user has tools to 
process them otherwise apply patch.

Majority accepted forced patching and forced drop of docs so EOT from my side.
