It seems to be a more general problem that Solbook/Docbook source
of the manpages is not available, so before updating actual
manpages there needs to be agreement what format manpages should
be written in. This was briefly discussed on the Illumos dev-list
but no conclusion were made, see

In order to move forward I would suggest that both of you bring
this up on developer at lists.illumos.org (and of course emphasize
your interest in working on this).
