The manpages from this package are compressed(gzip) and have the wrong file name(*.gz.xz).
Unless the man page is manually extracted and renamed you cant read it.

Additional info:
* Version: 12.4.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
Try to open the man page for any tool included. For example man iostat.

I forgot to add the packagename to the title.
The package with the bug is sysstat, if needed i can reopen the report.

If you apply [1] and add --disable-compress-manpg to the configure options does that resolve the issue?

From the output of configure the --enable-yesterday, --enable-install-isag, --disable-man-group options are no longer supported.

I tested the patches and added the --disable-compress-manpg build option.
With the patches and the option the issue is gone.

I haven't removed the --enable-yesterday, --enable-install-isag, --disable-man-group options.

seems like this is still an issue. can we have this patch backported locally?
