Thanks for this, however note the following. MANPATH is set in the first
command but doesn't set the path for teTeX. Is that a bug in symbolic links?

[Nigel-Kings-G4:~] nigelk% manpath -d
found mandatory man directory /usr/share/man
found optional man directory /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/man
found manpath map /bin --> /usr/share/man
found manpath map /usr/bin --> /usr/share/man
found manpath map /usr/local/bin --> /usr/local/man
found manpath map /usr/X11R6/bin --> /usr/X11R6/man
found manpath map /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current -->
(Warning: MANPATH environment variable set)
[Nigel-Kings-G4:~] nigelk% locate pdftex | grep /man
[Nigel-Kings-G4:~] nigelk% man pdftex
No manual entry for pdftex
[Nigel-Kings-G4:~] nigelk% setenv MANPATH "${MANPATH}:/usr/local/teTeX/man"
[Nigel-Kings-G4:~] nigelk% man pdftex
PDFTEX(1)                                               PDFTEX(1)
The man pages follow

In the last line of manpath -d there is no teTeX entry? This is 10.2.2.
