Description Esteve Varela Colominas 2021-04-21 14:56:46 UTC
Recently, app-emulation/qemu was updated to default-enable USE=doc, because it installs man pages, which are by many expected to be present by default, regardless of additional documentation.

CMake is in a very similar position, where USE=doc is required to install the man pages, as it uses sphinx to generate them. This is why I'd suggest doing the same, for the sake of consistency.
