There are no manpages for the netpbm suite in the Arch distro. Neither as part of the package itself, nor as a separate package (as far as I can tell). I really love netpbm but it is annoying to have to look up the documentation online.

Additional info:
Version netpbm-10.73.43-1

Steps to reproduce:

~$ man pnmcrop
No manual entry for pnmcrop
This task depends upon

Not technically a bug, should've selected "General Gripe". Sorry.

Orphaned pkg i.e. no maintainer. There's some commented out commands in the PKGBUILD re man pages. Related:  FS#40153  FS#70198
