Apparently texdoc relies on some environment variables {from man 

               DVI viewer.  Defaults to xdvi(1).

               PDF viewer.  Defaults to acroread(1).

               PostScript viewer.  Defaults to ghostview(1).

               HTML viewer.  Defaults to netscape(1).

               Text viewer.  Defaults to $PAGER-more.

I suspect Gerben Wierda can set these up in his distribution.   I think 
there's a way to use osascript to find out what the user's browser is, 
etc. but I haven't found it, yet.
