Ask my employer. :/

update

Look Emacs and Perl try heavily to be platform independend.

There is no reason to have a dependency on man, nroff, sed and awk.

Anyway there is plenty of legacy code depending on man, and eLisp should be flexible enough to use woman instead.

(If I had the time I'd produce a pod2info converter)
