In an out-of-tree build the generated man/Makefile fails to build man/defid.1, because help2man fails to run defid.

That's because defid is a script, so it is not found in <b>$(builddir)/../src</b>.   It's in <b>$(srcdir)/../src</b>, so that has to be added to the PATH extension in the .x.1 rule.

Once this is fixed, an attempted build on Cygwin runs into the next block: There is no "defid$(EXEEXT)" anywhere, because it's a script, not a binary execuable.  As starting executables doesn't need the $(EXEEXT), the easiest fix is to just remove the $(EXEEXT)
