I want to compile drbd-utils-9.10 on CentOS8. During configure it says:

./configure --without-manual


configure: WARNING: Cannot build man pages without po4a-translage. You
may safely ignore this warning when building from a tarball.

When I start a make rpm it fails with:


make[1]: Entering directory '/root/drbd-utils-9.10.0/documentation/ja/v9'
po4a-translate -f docbook -M utf-8 -L utf-8 -keep 0 -m
../../v9/drbdsetup.xml.in -p drbdsetup.xml.in.po -l drbdsetup.xml.in
make[1]: po4a-translate: Command not found
make[1]: *** [../../common/Makefile_v9_com_post:71: drbdsetup.xml.in]
Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory '/root/drbd-utils-9.10.0/documentation/ja/v9'
make: *** [Makefile:109: doc] Error 2

Why does the make process still want the po4a even when I told configure
to skip the manual (--without-manual)?

The problem is that there still is not po4a rpm available for CentOS8.

Yeah, there is, you just don't have the PowerTools repo enabled.

[root at centos8 ~]# dnf provides '*/po4a-translate'  --enablerepo=epel-testing,epel-playground
