The "how to install" document (http://www.nico.schottelius.org/software/cdist/install/) says:

To install cdist, execute the following commands:

git clone git://git.schottelius.org/cdist
cd cdist
export PATH=$PATH:$(pwd -P)/bin

If you want to build and use the manpages, run:

./build man
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:$(pwd -P)/doc/man

However, there is no such thing as a "./build" executable anywhere to be found. How to produce man pages?

You are right, ./build moved to ./bin/build-helper due to the migration of a lot of stuff to the Makefile. For the moment, the documentation can be adjusted to read ./bin/build-helper - in the near future it will be moved to the Makefile as well.
