Hi Michalis,

It's me again (sorry). It looks like this may be about the final mail
before I have 6.0.2 ready for Debian Experimental (in time for Ubuntu if
I don't have so many issues with the new version of view3dscene ;) )

I am having a bit of problems with "castle-curves --help".
First (easily solvable by me) it depends on libgail-common and
libatk-adaptor to prevent the following behavior in a (headless) build
(pbuild13858) testavoira castle-game-engine-6.0.2+dfsg1 #
tools/castle-curves/castle-curves --help
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gail"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge"

(castle-curves:25764): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

However, after installing those packages, I still get:
(pbuild13858) testavoira castle-game-engine-6.0.2+dfsg1 #
tools/castle-curves/castle-curves --help

(castle-curves:26516): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
(pbuild13858) testavoira castle-game-engine-6.0.2+dfsg1 # echo $?

So help2man fails during building of the man page for it. Is this easily
solvable or do I need to tweak around this?
