Comment(by kyngchaos):

 In adding the install for g.html2man (r46240 in rel64, r46241 in dev6), I
 found an update (r45933) by martinl that did that, though it was broken
 (didn't make sure g.html2man subfolder existed).  But also he had an old
 copy of the Makefile and I had to fix a reversion.

 And instead of my changes to g.extension to change ARCH_* vars, martin
 hacked platform.make, grass.make and man.make on install to change the
 make vars.

 Though it probably needs a few more vars updated to match what I did,
 which is the better method?  Seems to me to change 1 file, g.extension, is
 better than to change 3.  But maybe there are other uses for the makefiles
 outside g.extension?

 I guess both methods won't hurt...
