[OS X TeX] MacTeX installer and man pages

Hi all,

I just upgraded to Tiger and installed TeX and friends using the  
latest MacTeX installer (very nice!). I need to look at the man page  
for ps2pdf, so I opened the terminal and typed 'man ps2pdf'. This  
gives the response 'No manual entry for ps2pdf'. However, if I look  
in /usr/local/man/man1, I see ps2pdf.1, as I should. So apparently,  
something (path setting or otherwise) is not getting set for the man  
pages. What's the recommended way to do this? Shouldn't this have  
been done automagically by the MacTeX installer?
