I tried building binutils 2.39-3 in a chroot. It fails to build due to `help2man` missing in makedepends.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
(1) clone binutils build files from git
(2) run makechrootpkg
(3) see the error message on help2man not being installed
(4) edit in help2man in the makedepend array
(5) build works
This task depends upon
