At some point you get empty files called zshbuiltins.1 etc. created.

That doesn't really work with colcrt (or col) --- it's one of a possible
of set of tools varying by what the local manual system provides.
There's a variability here there isn't with Yodl and I don't feel like
fixing things up for every variant on the planet.

However, using the Doc bundle would probably be a good enough fix in
practice.  I should probably check that doesn't produce idiosyncracices
with helpfiles on Cygwin.

Of course, using Yodl throughout would be the right fix, but I haven't
heard anybody thinking about that.
