I think your arguments to $(filter) is the other way around, but
other than that, I think I get what you are trying to do.  Let me
make sure I got it right.

The idea is to use $(filter PATTERN..., TEXT) that removes words in
TEXT that do not match any of the words in PATTERN, and for normal
build, MAN_FILTER is set identical to TMP_MAN_TXT (which is the
original MAN_TXT), so there is no filtering happen, but in a build
that does tweak MAN_FILTER, MAN_TXT can become a subset of the
original MAN_TXT.

Am I on the right track?

And these act on already-filtered MAN_TXT

This one uses $(filter) in the right direction.

So is it expected that HTML help pages that correspond to manpages
are strict subset of manpages?  

I see HTML_FILTER may be useful to filter HTML pages that come from
$(ARTICLES), but I'd expect that all $(MAN_HTML) that came from the
already-filtered $(MAN_TXT) would not require any further filtering.
With the approach shown, the secondary project ends up needing to
list all the translated MAN_TXT twice (once for MAN_FILTER, and
again for HTML_FILTER), doesn't it?

I am wondering if it makes more sense to have HTML_FILTER filter _only_
parts of the DOC_HTML that does not come from MAN_TXT (i.e. those
$(ARTICLES) pages).

These are OK, too.

By the way, lose the SP after ',' in $(filter).  As we can see in
the context lines in the patch, args to $(make-functions) are
separated with comma without surrounding SP by convention.

What kind of PATTERN does the secondary project supply when invoking
this Makefile?  If it is list of filenames, I am wondering if it is
simpler to have it override MAN{1,5,7}_TXT variables, without adding
these "TMP_* + fliter + undef TMP_*" dance.
