I've got yodl — cherry-picked from MacPorts, since Homebrew doesn't have it.
Building the man/HTML pages with that is no problem once i've got it.

For the PDF, i needed TeX, which the normal Homebrew repo also doesn't have i
guess because it's similarly complicated to build on macOS. Homebrew Cask has
the MacTeX distribution, but the full thing is over 3 GiB, which is silly. I
found the 'basic' distribution, though, and then i needed to manually install
the texinfo thing for it, and after all that i thought i'd be OK, but
apparently TeX needs X11 to generate the PDF for some reason (font stuff, i

On balance, X11 is probably smaller and easier to install than TeX. Still, it
felt excessive.
