That's right. Looking more closely I think the issue is only with the
permissions of the directories /usr/local/share/man/man*, not the files
that they contain. Of course this is still an obstacle for the manpages
to be readable. So I guess the following in doc/Makefile.local (just
above what you quoted):
mkdir -p "$(DESTDIR)$(mandir)/man1"
mkdir -p "$(DESTDIR)$(mandir)/man5"
mkdir -p "$(DESTDIR)$(mandir)/man7"
does not override the umask. I suspect that the parameter -m0644 should
be passed to these invocations too.
