Currently the manpage is copied directly from Xquartz.man in hw/darwin
to the installed Xquartz.1, it looks like it should have a sed done on it.

in Makefile.am put

man1_MANS = Xquartz.1

Xquartz.1: Xquartz.man
<TAB>sed -e "s!__vendor_version__!$(VENDOR_MAN_VERSION)!g" -e "s!
__miscmansuffix__!1!g" <  Xquartz.man > Xquartz.1

Should work, but untried.
