Package: docbook2x
Version: 0.8.8-8
Severity: normal

Gnash manpages are built with docbook2x (xslt -> Man-XML -> man)

e.g. Input is findmicrophones.man-xml file [1]

 $ db2x_xsltproc -s man findmicrophones.man-xml -o findmicrophones.mxml
 $ db2x_manxml --solinks findmicrophones.mxml

Resulting findmicrophones.1 manpage has unescaped dashes which trigger
"hyphen-used-as-minus-sign" lintian tag [2].
