Does this need to be shipped with the rakudo compiler?

Since the perl6 program --help once mentioned the perl6 man page, maybe it
should.

I think any pod2man translator program should be separate from Rakudo itself.

If --help mentions a man page, it's probably sufficient to ship Rakudo
with an already-translated man page, rather than shipping the translator.

Very true--the voice of reason!

But shouldn't all the pod6-to-X translators live together and share lots of
common code (such as ShimmerFairy's planned pod6 grammar)?

Sure, it's reasonable for pod6-to-X translators to live together; but Rakudo (compiler) isn't the place for that. Better is to have the translators as modules, and then bundle them into a distribution like a Rakudo Star or the like.
