According to Gerben's notes in the potrace ii-package there is
a man page - he quotes from it :-) and it really is there

   jhr at Beano(ttyp1)[~]% locate potrace

The problem here is that Tiger no longer looks in /usr/local/man
for man pages, rather it looks in /usr/local/share/man so it
does not see anything in /usr/local/man.

I get around this by making /usr/local/man be a symbolic link
to /usr/local/share/man.

Alternatively you can manually set the MANPATH variable to something


in your .profile or .login, or edit /usr/share/misc/man.conf.
