My man.conf file also contains that (+others, e.g. X11) and,  

## TeX modifications start at Sat Jun 11 08:47:57 CDT 2005

MANPATH_MAP    /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current    / 
## Do not remove next line

is at the bottom of the file. I know I didn't change that so did the  
TeX i-install put it there when I re-installed TeX after doing an  
Archive & Install of Tiger(r).

Notice that I've reduced the number of redundant r's at the end of  
Tiger; I used to call it Tigerrrr. It is working much better for me  
now that I really cleaned up after my old Virex. I've noticed two  
occasional glitches: once in a while system usage go to 70-90% for a  
period and everything else is locked up and a similar thing happens  
with the mds process (which is `niced' but, as has been noted here,  
that doesn't mean to much). I have no man page for mds although  
mdimport, etc., do ahve man pages. Does anyone know what mds does?  
I'd almost guess it is the server for a Spotlight search but...

Good Luck,
