Sorry for that, tbh I wasn't sure what to do. When I test locally I
make sure the build is and isn't adding libpfm into the man pages, the
libpfm tests pass, some command line uses. It'd be great to automate
this as it is not something you'd want to do for every patch and there
is some build sensitivity that potentially could break it.

Thanks,
Ian
