Getting man pages to work
Authored by: sven on Mar 10, '01 08:16:40AM

I can't verify this right now (wish PB would run on Titaniums...) but I believe OSX also honors the MANPATH environment variable. So you could add additional directories to your MANPATH:

setenv MANPATH /usr/share/man:/usr/local/man:$MANPATH

It only honours the environment variable if you delete your man.conf file. You can edit the file to make it search more directories (you can find it at /etc/man.conf). I think it's a better solution to just use the directories the OS likes.
