	/etc/manpath.config is appened by teTeX that add the line

MANPATH /usr/local/tetex/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current  /usr/local/tetex/man

after that I suppose running  manpath  as says  "man manpath" should 
append to the environtment variable the corresponding mapping 
(between files in the (i dont understant why son funny named)

/usr/local/tetex/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current (that must be also 
in the $path, as is) and the /usr/local/tetex/man  directory

but this not works at least in my 10.2.1

man latex does not works and you need to put

man -M /usr/local/tetex/man  latex to see the corresponding man's

Why so funny names?
Why do not follow the starndards and name the bins


Why that not works?
