Hi Sébastien,

Actually patches 3 and 4 (modifications to setting MANPATH) are not correct - they break man.  If MANPATH is defined, it needs a leading or trailing ":" so that /etc/man_db.conf is still used.  So the MANPATH setting is already correct.

I also discovered that "man" can find the man pages even when MANPATH is unset:

$ MANPATH= manpath

So perhaps MANPATH doesn't need to be set at all?
