A similar error & clues from

LibreSSL 2.9.1 now has a test that requires libtls.a, however, when building a
shared library only build, the --disable-static flag is passed to libressl,
which prevents the building of libtls.a.

With libtls.a not being built, the following error occurs:
libressl-2.9.1/tls/.libs/libtls.a', needed by 'handshake_table'.  Stop.

There are three options to fix this:
1) Stick with autotools, and provide a patch that removes building anything in
   the tests folder.
2) Pass --enable-static to LIBRESSL_CONF_OPTS
3) Change the package type to cmake, as a cmake build does not have this issue."

It appears we cannot change to cmake because cmake has a dependency on
an ssl library.

Take option 1 and do not build the tests.

Also take the opportunity to remove man page building as well.
