I think doxygen is severly broken and just skipping refman.pdf (finally
users can read other format) the only safe solution to keep the package

I do not think that there is anything to do now but hoping that the
package will be kicked for no good reason.

Kind regards

PS: Its better to write in public - at least CCing the bug would
