Unfortunately, no. But, when man pages were not immediately available
online, I hacked together some godawful sh script that called the
right sequence of nroff and whatever else man uses. In any case, my
need has passed; the suckless tools are not so complicated that I
can't remember their syntax. The number of users stuck in completely
backwards environments is probably so low that it is not worth the
effort of suckless developers to update yet another section of the
website whenever something changes.
