Consider this as a bug report ;-)

When I run ireminder I get: 
ERROR - can't find ipraytime

What I should get:
ERROR - can't find ipraytime
Usage: ireminder.pl [-ipraytime path]
                    [-skip event_name]
                    [-reminder minutes]

It is best to let the user know that a --help argument does exist
without the need for a manpage.

There is at least one other /usr/bin/ script on my system with no
manpage (fixmswrd.pl from the gs-common package).

Those were some Debian related fixed and you may wish to wait until
all the issues with Debian are over.
