Doclifter

http://www.catb.org/~esr/doclifter/
'doclifter' is a tool that transcodes {n,t,g}roff documentation to DocBook XML markup. It parses man, mandoc, ms, me, or TkMan page sources, does structural analysis, and recognizes common troff-markup cliches. The result is usable without further hand-hacking about 95% of the time.
