Hm.  One obvious solution to that would be to not save backup copies of
any of the man pages on make update.  I'm not sure what I think about

I generally restart the server after make update, watch the logs for a
while to make sure everything looks reasonable, and then do:

    cd ~news
    find -name "*.OLD" -print | xargs rm
