Following an off-list suggestion by Gerben earlier today, I just  
added the single line

MANPATH		/usr/local/man

at the end of /usr/share/misc/man.conf and voilà: "man tiff2ps" works  
like a charm.

It seems that, with this addition, when no page is found in /usr/ 
local/share/man according to MANPATH_MAP, then man turns back to /usr/ 
local/man as defined by MANPATH.
