Please ship manpages for binaries

Detailed description
Hi, it would be nice to provide at least minimal manpages for all shipped binaries. There is excellent documentation for SML/NJ, and I don't think it's worth the time to document all of this in a manpage. However, it would be nice to have some basic information about usage.

Debian already ships skeletal manpages for all the binaries. I thought I'd file a feature request here with links to the manpages in case you're ever interested in developing them more.

As of 110.77 the doc.tgz file in the distribution includes manual pages for the command-line tools. On Mac OS X, these are installed in /usr/local/man.
