To make a PDF file of a manual page on Linux, this involves a very simple command.

Make a Postscript file from a manual page on Linux.

[email protected]son-desktop:~$ man -t 3 printf > printf.ps

Then convert the Postscript file to a PDF easily.

[email protected]:~$ ps2pdf printf.ps

This is how easy it is to create a PDF file of a Linux man page.
