Fix missing man pages for self-installed utilities

Why not keep it simple and just modify your ~/.profile which allows you to directly modify the PATH and MANPATH variables. BTW, most users don't have a /.MacOSX/environment.plist file—I don't. Here's my .profile file; tailor yours to suit your specific needs:

# (do not remove this comment)
echo $PATH | grep -q -s "/usr/local/bin"
if [ $? -eq 1 ] ; then
export PATH
export MANPATH="/usr/share/man:/usr/local/share/man:/usr/X11R6/man"
